What Is Hip Resurfacing, and How Does It Relate to DePuy’s Recalls?
Unlike hip replacement surgery, hip resurfacing does not require surgeons to remove any bone from a patient. Instead, surgeons resurface the hip joint. This means that they attach a metal cap to the femur and implant a metal cup into the pelvis.
DePuy’s ASR line of hip replacement systems includes a resurfacing system that suffers from the same defects as the other products in that particular line. As such, individuals with faulty hip resurfacing systems from DePuy may be entitled to financial compensation.
