Important Information About the ASR Hip System Recall

DePuy issued a voluntary recall of its ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System in August 2010. We understand that the ASR Hip System recall is concerning for patients, their family members and surgeons. Since the recall decision was made, DePuy has worked to provide patients and surgeons with the information and support they need.

These systems first became commercially available in July 2003 globally, and in June 2004 in India. If you had your hip surgery prior to June 2004 in India, the hip you received is not subject to the ASR recall.
