DePuy Pinnacle Hip ImplantsPosted by in Insurance
DePuy, the manufacture of many types of orthopedic implants, issued a recall on its ASR hip implants last year. However, our office has seen a number of inquiries regarding the DePuy Pinnacle implants. Both implants appear to have similar issues: the “metal-on-metal” configuration creates metal debris in the hip. This metal debris causes an infection-like reaction, called metallosis. The result is a painful hip and, often, damage to bone and surrounding soft tissues as well as loosening of the components. The treatment is usually a surgical revision of the implants.
If you have a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant and have experienced any problems, please contact our office at 314-721-8833 or 1-800-557-8176 for a free consultation.
