The History of DePuy

DePuy is currently one of the largest orthopedics companies in the world and is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Before that, though, DePuy had a history of innovating medical procedures through the use of new and advanced instruments and technologies.

Unfortunately, one of those innovative devices, the DePuy ASR hip replacement system, has a high failure rate. If you have been the victim of a defective DePuy hip implant, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

DePuy’s Timeline

DePuy is currently a conglomerate of the companies DePuy, Codman & Shurtleff, and Mitek, all of which have been innovative in their own rights over the years. DePuy’s history begins in 1895 and continues into the present day. A timeline of DePuy’s history is as follows:

  • 1895 – DePuy is founded and develops the first fiber splint
  • 1904 – Codman & Shurtleff, Inc., is founded
  • 1960s – DePuy develops the first hip implant
  • 1985 – Mitek is founded
  • 1998 – DePuy joins Johnson & Johnson

Throughout their histories, these companies have been responsible for creating many technologies still in use today, such as insulated forceps and knee replacements. Even though DePuy has been innovative, it still has a responsibility to the people who use its products.
