Hip Replacement Litigation
Call Our Dallas Product Liability Lawyers for National Representation Today: (844) 297-8898
According to research, more than 500,000 patients in the United States received artificial, all-metal implants during hip replacement surgical procedures. Many manufacturers of these products claim that these implants, made up of ball-and-socket components, are more durable and provide a better range of motion than previous-generation artificial implants, which were made with metal, plastic, and ceramics. Unfortunately, many patients suffered extreme pain and other consequences after receiving all-metal implants including:
- DePuy ASR Acetabular & Resurfacing System
- Wright Conserve Plus and Profemur Z Hip Stem
- Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Recall
- Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System
- Zimmer Durom® Acetabular Component

Symptoms of Hip Replacement Failure
A countless number of patients who received all-metal hip implants have suffered muscle damage, crippling tissue, and debilitating pain following surgery. As a result, many hip replacement patients have been forced to undergo additional, costly, and painful revision operations to remove the faulty metal implants and insert other devices.
How to Know if a Metal Hip Implant is Failing
Patients who have received all-metal implants should be aware that the following symptoms may indicate that their device is not functioning correctly or safely:
- Regular and prolonged pain in the leg, hip, or groin
- Swelling near or at the hip joint
- A change or limp in walking ability
While some patients may not be symptomatic, many of these devices present pain, decreased range of motion, elevated metal and head disassociation, and other symptoms requiring premature revision surgeries.
