How to identify a hip fracture

Posted on August 9th, 2011 No Comments

Although one might think that the signs of a hip fracture would be obvious, at times the pain and symptoms related to a hip fracture can more subtle and mistaken for something other than a fracture.

If you have a recalled DePuy hip replacement, you may want to watch out for some of the less obvious symptoms of a hip fracture like subtle pain when you put weight on your leg, sharp pains near the hip, swelling or bruising around the hip, and loss of motion in the hip or leg.

Defective and poorly place hip replacements have been shown to increase one’s risk of hip fracture.  If you or someone you know has experienced some of these symptoms that seem minor, but are constant or worsening, you should seek medical help.  A doctor should be able to tell if you have a hip fracture with a simple X-ray scan.

If you have suffered hip fracture caused by the defective DePuy ASR hip replacement, contact the DePuy lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
