Symptoms of Hip Replacement Failure
Soon after a hip replacement surgery, the majority of people report improved results. Unfortunately, some patients begin to feel the symptoms of hip replacement failure within two to five years after surgery. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a failed hip replacement surgery and was forced to endure pain or undergo a revision surgery, you are not alone. DePuy has recalled 93,000 APR hip implants that have been sold since 2005 because of their abnormally high failure rate.

Hip Replacement Failure Symptoms
The symptoms associated with hip replacement failure include:
- Pain and stiffness in the hips, thighs, and groin
- Difficulty standing or walking
- Inflammation and swelling
These symptoms may be associated with dislocation, damage to tissues, or metal particles entering the bloodstream. Even if you do not currently demonstrate these symptoms, if you were a hip replacement surgery patient, it is important to speak with your doctor about the type of hip replacement you received to evaluate your future medical options.
If you or a loved one has received a DePuy hip replacement, your implant may be subject to recall and you may have the right to pursue legal action against the manufacturer.
