ASR Resurfacing vs. Total Replacement: The Complications

When people are facing hip replacement surgery, the terms “ASR resurfacing” and total hip replacement are frequently used. ASR refers to “articular surface replacement,” which is a significantly different type of surgery than a total hip replacement procedure, in which the femoral head and bone are completely removed. Resurfacing can offer a freer range of movement post-surgery that is sometimes not possible with total hip replacement. This freer movement is often an important requirement for a person, either because of their jobs or their daily lifestyle, but this surgery may not always be a possibility. However, regardless of which surgery a person has, they may become the victim of a defective hip implant which could cause a multitude of financial woes.

If you or someone you know has had a defective DePuy hip replacement, you may be able to obtain legal compensation. Contact our experienced DePuy lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options.

The Possible Complications

Patients receiving a DePuy hip implant may have had either an ASR replacement or a total hip replacement. However, in both types of surgeries, patients have suffered negative consequences, despite the inherent differences between the procedures, such as:

  • Non-removal of femoral head and bone in resurfacing
  • More restricted movement after total replacement
  • Focused repair in resurfacing, rather than total removal of hip
  • Bone preservation in resurfacing procedures

Even though these procedures are quite different from one another, many patients who underwent hip replacement or resurfacing with DePuy suffered serious pain and discomfort following the surgery, making them potentially eligible to pursue compensation.
