Whether you have had a total hip replacement or resurfacing, it is possible to bring claims against the manufacturer DePuy and if the product was fitted incorrectly or not suitable them it may be possible that your claim becomes a clinical negligence claim.
The British Hip Society has issued guidance on what investigations should take place to discover if your hip joint has failed and DePuy has withdrawn the hip joint product.
The hip is believed to have a problem because of its shape. This increases the pressure inside the join and forces the lubricating fluid out of the joint.
Because this happens in some cases, metal rubs against metal and this cause it to wear away. Small particles then break away from the surface causing a range of symptoms. And nobody knows what the long term effects of these metal particles in the blood stream will have.
Studies demonstrate that the DePuy ASR fails more often than other similar products. This means that if you are not experiencing current problems you should still speak to us. Because you can’t predict the future.
The added complications that arise from re-doing the hip are also worth bearing in mind.
Further operations do not always work as well and there is added risk that you should not have had to go through. This is why it is important to get compensation if you are entitled to it. I know from personal experience with my own amputation, it’s the compensation that allows you to recover more quickly.
