This Google+ page is sponsored by the national plaintiffs' law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP:
Hip implants composed of all-metal surfaces have been failing at unprecedented rates compared to traditional artificial implants made of ceramics and plastic. These failures force hip implant patients to undergo costly, intrusive, and often painful revision surgery to correct the problems caused by their all-metal (also known as metal-on-metal) hip implants.
The manufacturers and devices included in recent lawsuits by patients who implant failed include:
- The Stryker
- Stryker AGB II
- Wright Profemur-Z hip system
- DePuy Orthopaedics
ASR XL Acetabular
- DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing system
- certain DePuy Pinnacle hip implants
Metal Hip Recall & Lawsuits
Patients represented by Lieff Cabraser have filed lawsuits against DePuy, Stryker, Wright, and other manufacturers seeking compensation for pain, suffering, and other physical injuries, and the cost of replacement surgery and other financial difficulties as a result of the failure of their hip implants. The hip recall lawsuits charge that the manufacturers variously concealed the fact that their metal hip implants were defective and likely to suffer early failure from patients and physicians.
