‘Poster lady’ for Depuy files suit against the manufacturer

Posted on October 12th, 2011 No Comments

A “poster lady” for Depuy Orthopaedics’s ASR hip implant in the United Kingdom is filing suit against the hip replacement manufacturer.  Penny Brown, a former professional gymnast, agreed to advertise the hip replacement after receiving one of their ASR implants in 2004 to stop serious arthritis pain in her hip.

Brown says, “I was advised to have the ASR resurfacing procedure rather than a total hip replacement on the basis that it would last much longer, be safer and reduce the likelihood of further surgery during my lifetime.”

Although initially happy with the hip replacement, in 2009, Brown developed pain near her groin.  Tests revealed that the pain was the result of her hip implant’s failure.  Brown was told she would need a revision surgery to relieve the pain and replace the implant.

The former gymnast and DePuy “poster lady” has joined a class-action lawsuit against DePuy in the U.K.  The lawsuit includes claims from over 300 people.
