http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com/ Hip replacement surgery is a common procedure with 250,000 surgeries occurring annually in the United States. Only 1-3 percent of those procedures will require corrective surgery. This small population should be manageable for regulators to quickly identify and track defective hip replacements. It is unfortunate that the U.S. does not have any type of national artificial joint registration implemented. This lack of a regulatory system along with the prolonged amount of time it takes for a hip replacement to malfunction has allowed DePuy to sell 93,000 hip replacements worldwide unregulated. Consequently, the DePuy hip recall has caused deleterious effects to thousands of recipients. In addition to that, DePuy is also under fire because of the alleged ‘kickback scandal’ reporting of the company paying consultants to make them use its products exclusively.
