Defective Hip Implants Are Leading to Lawsuits
Do You Know What Brand of Hip You Have?
Hips are in the spotlight right now on some of the biggest stages around the world. Andy Murray, Sybil Shapiro, and Al Roker have all made successful comebacks in their respective fields after hip resurfaces and replacements. Unfortunately, for many other people, hip replacements have only caused new problems. Was your brand of hip recalled? You may have a case…
The Right Hip Makes a World of Difference
In October, nearly ten months after hip resurfacing surgery, Andy Murray won the European Open, his first tournament win of the year. Two years after a hip replacement, long-distance runner Sybil Shapiro is winning races again and setting personal records. Elsewhere, Al Roker recently made a triumphant return to television after his hip replacement.
These success stories are but a fraction of the new beginnings people have had after hip surgeries. But your recovery from a hip replacement starts with receiving the right kind of implant.
What You Need to Know
If you received a hip implant between 2006 and 2016, check your records to see if you received one of these now-recalled hips…
- Smith & Nephew Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) System
- Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular Total Hip Replacement System
- Smith & Nephew Total Hip Arthroplasty
- Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Implant
- Zimmer M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis with VerSys Femoral Head
If you received one of these implants between 2006 and 2016 and have experienced severe hip and leg pain, tissue and bone damage, or metallosis after the procedure, a defective product may be the cause.
