Hip replacements, understandably, can be both an uncomfortable but necessary process. However, it is important to realize how much pain is too much pain during the recovery process of a hip replacement or implant.
Hip Replacement Recall: DePuy Orthopaedics and Johnson & Johnson have announced a recall of their Hip Replacement System and Hip Resurfacing System in 2010. Patients who have received these systems have experienced pain, swelling, and problems walking. The connective tissues and nerves around your hips are very fragile, and can become damaged by these systems. Even if you have not experienced such discomfort, several hip devices have still been recalled. Below is a list of current DePuy and Johnson & Johnson Hip devices that have been recalled:
- ASR™ XL Acetabular System
- ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System
