Defective Hip Replacement System Manufacturers
There are quite a few different types of hip replacement systems that have failed as the result of defective design or manufacture, including many metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. These medical devices have been manufactured by a number of different companies, including:
Stryker – Hip implant systems manufactured by Stryker have failed upon implantation in the body, including the ABG II and Rejuvenate;
Wright Medical – Manufactured the Medical Pro Femur and Conserve Plus. In addition to hip replacement failure or defects impacting mobility, there has been corrosion of the metal components, leading to serious problems as the result of metal poisoning (called metallosis);
Depuy – (pronounced DePew) Orthopaedics is proud of its 200 products, but some of those products cost the company billions of dollars in injury settlements. The Pinnacle Hip Replacement System, the ASR XL Acetabular System total hip replacement and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System all were designed to accommodate younger hip replacement patients by providing more flexibility and range of motion than existing hip replacement devices.
