Hip Resurfacing Surgery

Individuals whose hips wear out or become damaged may not require full hip replacement surgeries. Instead, some people can get by with just a hip resurfacing, which holds many advantages over a full replacement. Depuy, among other manufacturers, makes hip resurfacing systems for individuals who are eligible for this surgery.

Unfortunately, Depuy’s ASR hip resurfacing system comes with many of the same disadvantages of the full replacement systems, such as the potential for fractures or dislocation. If you or someone you love suffered harm after having a Depuy hip resurfacing system implanted, you can fight back. Contact the Depuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Understanding the Resurfacing Procedure

When a person get a hip resurfacing, he or she essentially gets a new hip joint. Unlike a full replacement, surgeons do not have to remove substantial parts of the femur to implant the device. Rather, the surgeon puts a metal cap on the end of the femur and a metal cup in the pelvis.

Since resurfacing only implants caps, the surgery literally resurfaces the hip joint, giving the person a new joint. These implants work much like full replacements in that regard. Usually, these implants are designed much like full replacements minus the full metal rod down the femur.

The Dangers of Depuy Implants

With the case of Depuy products, the resurfacing system suffers from the same defects as a full hip replacement. Rather than facing a simpler, shorter recovery period for this partial replacement, you may be facing consequences such as bone fracturing around the device or the metal parts becoming dislodged from your bones.
