DePuy Orthopaedics

On its website, DePuy Orthopaedics advises patients and doctors what to do about the recall of the two ASR systems:

  • ASR™ XL Acetabular System
  • ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System

The systems first became available in July 2003, so patients and doctors using hip implants before this date need not be concerned. If a patient had hip implant surgery after this date, it is important to determine if the implant was made by DePuy Orthopaedics. Many patients may not be aware of the manufacturer of their implant.

How Do I Know If I Have a DePuy ASR™ Hip Implant?

To find out who made your implant and which model was used, you need to call your doctor’s office or the hospital where you had your implant surgery. Your patient chart should have a record of what implant was used in your surgery.

If you had a DePuy ASR™ implant, it is important to make an appointment with your doctor to evaluate your situation. It's quite possible no treatment is needed. But, you may need further treatment, possibly revision surgery, if you have some of the following symptoms:

  • Pain deep in the groin
  • Pain upon walking
  • Popping sounds while walking
  • Difficulty rising to a standing position when seated
  • The sensation that your hip is out of joint

You and your doctor will review your situation and decide on the best course of action, if any action is needed.
