US Drug Watchdog Now Offers to Provide all Recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle or Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant the Names of the Best Attorneys –Don’t Get Left Holding the Bag

August 8, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “Our Fear is once the lawsuits, or Multi District Litigations (MDL’s) are over, DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure victims will have a slim to none chance of meaningful recourse against the maker of these metal-on-metal hip implants devices.” The US Drug Watchdog is extremely worried about failures, or potential failures of the DePuy Pinnacle, and or the now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, and as far as they are concerned the 200,000 US citizens, who are recipients of these hip implants should all have their blood tested to see if they have cobalt, or chromium in their blood streams. The group is also urging all recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle, or the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant to call them for the names and contacts for the best possible national caliber attorneys, and they do not care if these specific types of metal on metal hip implants have failed yet-or not. DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients can call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is saying, “Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we are offering to help get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag financially two years from now.” The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, “Extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade to replace the implants.” The US Drug Watchdog is saying, “With respect to the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant over 130,000 were surgically implanted between 2002 & 2010 in the US, there is already a Federal Multi District Litigation over the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and our big worry here is only about a thousand individuals have signed up so far? Of the nearly 40,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, only about 4000 hip implant recipients have been identified-so far. In this instance we believe the number of individuals identified should be closer to 35,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients. We are urging family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient between 2002, and 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR, or Pinnacle, and then have them call us-if the answer is yes.” For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle, or now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

  • Pain in the Hip Region

  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • The US Drug Watchdog says, “We think the easiest way for a recipient of any type of metal on metal hip implant to see if their device is starting to fail–is to have a simple blood test that measures cobalt, or chromium levels in the blood stream.”

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to the best possible national caliber trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the extraordinary track record in achieving superior results for their clients-period.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
