Hip Maker Discussed Failures

More details emerge surrounding Johnson and Johnson' Depuy hip replacement failures.  How aware was the company that their product was unsafe?


"Throughout the episode, DePuy blamed orthopedic surgeons for the model’s failures, saying that doctors were not positioning a component properly. But the clinical findings rejected by the F.D.A. came from A.S.R. studies run by surgeons hand-picked by DePuy, including some who had developed the implant and received royalties or consulting fees in connection with it."


  1. Victims should not be afraid anymore because there are hip replacement lawyers who are willing to help.

  2. They need to understand that they have people to back them up with this Hip Recall issue.
