DePuy settles lawsuit accusing them of providing kickbacks to surgeons

Posted on October 25th, 2011 No Comments

After DePuy Orthopaedics and four other leading hip and knee replacement manufacturers settled a lawsuit that claimed the companies provided kickbacks to surgeons in order to get them to use their products, the manufacturers have reduced payments made to surgeons and physicians.

In 2007, DePuy and the other manufacturers agreed to pay $311 million to settle the lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.  The Department of Justice had evidence that DePuy was paying surgeons and bribing surgeons with gifts so that they would exclusively use their hip replacements.

Researchers have found that, while payments given to academic researchers are at similar levels as before the lawsuit, payments made to surgeons from DePuy have decreased.

If you or someone you love experienced hip implant failure much sooner than you were informed your replacement would last, an experienced attorney can help you receive compensation for any pain, surgeries, and complications caused by your hip implant’s failure.
