Johnson & Johnson Subsidiary Announces Hip Recall

The Nagelberg Bernard Law Group is filing lawsuits on behalf of victims of a recent hip replacement recall.

Johnson & Johnson Subsidiary Announces Hip Recall

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, issued a recall of the hip implants after the National Joint Registry found that failure rates were nearing 13% in the first five years of surgery.

The findings show that heavy metals such as chromium and cobalt have been found to leak into the patients' circulatory system through the lower part of the hip. One out of eight patients who received DePuy hip implants will have to undergo a second hip replacement surgery, as well as be treated for metal poisoning.
