At the beginning of this month, yet another wrinkle was added to the recent news coverage on DePuy Orthaepedics’ controversial Artificial Surface Replacement (ASR), a hip implant for patients suffering from severe arthritis. In this story, the United Kingdom Press Association reports that retired gymnast Penny Brown, who appeared in ads for the product after she received a hip replacement herself, is now joining a class action against her former employer. Brown and the 300 other patients involved claim that wore out prematurely leading to further complications or – as in Brown’s case, – the need for additional surgery.

Seeger Weiss is currently investigating claims of patients who were harmed by the hip replacement.

Information on the current recall of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements is available here.
