US Drug Watchdog Dramatically Ramps Up Their Efforts To Get All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients Identified To The Best Attorneys Or Law Firms Because Of Failures

July 16, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, it has already been well documented that there is a failure rate with the DePuy Pinnacle hip implants that was significant enough to warrant a national lawsuit over this specific hip implant device, and we want to get every DePuy Pinnacle recipient identified. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle, please call us immediately.” Because DePuy Pinnacle hip implants were surgically installed on well over 130,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with metal-on-metal hip implants, The US Drug Watchdog is doing every thing possible to get every victim of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure identified, so they can make sure they get to the best possible attorneys. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, “The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients.” The US Drug Watchdog is urging any DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. We could easily have over one thousand US citizens, who are recipients of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, who might be living each day in pain. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure victims identified to the best possible national caliber attorneys, or law firms, and we will help with the process.” The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from every recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, out of fear their device may have started to fail, or may prematurely fail down the road. The group fears most recipients may not know the warning signs of a metal on metal hip implant failure. Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, and or elevated levels of cobalt in the recipients blood stream.
