Let an eastern Tennessee hip replacement lawyer represent you
With an aging population that remains active, hip replacements have become more in demand. Each year, more than 310,000 people receive artificial hip joints, which can significantly improve the quality of life for someone who has lost mobility.
While new technology can offer great promise for people who might otherwise severely limited in their activities, some people have been harmed by dangerous medical devices. A medical marvel can become a nightmare due to the negligence of manufacturers. In some cases, poor design or defective materials have resulted in serious side effects for hip replacement patients.

Hip implant side effects have been linked with other manufacturers besides DePuy, including:
- Sulzer Orthopedics, which announced a recall of the company’s Inter-Op acetabular shell for hip implants.
- Zimmer Holdings, manufacturer of the Zimmer Durom Hip Cup, or Zimmer Durom acetabular component. Zimmer suspended sales in 2008 due to a defect in which the device failed to bond properly with the existing bone in patients.
People with defective hip implants may experience pain, difficulty walking, swelling, stiffness and other symptoms of a defective device.
