Surgery of any kind can be a painful experience; however, hip surgery is known to be very painful and the recovery time can seem interminable. Furthermore, what happens when the hip implant placed in your body is defective?
Johnson & Johnson recalled more than 100,000 DePuy hip implants, which were distributed to patients nationwide. Reports revealed that some patients’ devices failed early on, which required them to undergo painful operations to put in new hip implants. Others are just now experiencing the negative effects, and are still awaiting corrective surgery. Thousands of painful and expensive operations are required because of the incompetent actions taken in distributing such substandard products.
