Background

Reason for ASR Hip Recall
In August 2010, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of the ASR Hip System after receiving new information from the National Joint Registry (NJR) for England and Wales as part of its ongoing surveillance of post-market data concerning the ASR Hip System. After reviewing this data, DePuy decided it was in the best interests of patients to voluntarily recall the ASR Hip System.

DePuy's Commitment
Since the recall decision was made, DePuy has worked to provide patients and surgeons with the information and support they need, and DePuy's efforts to support ASR patients and their surgeons remain a top priority.

DePuy has been committed to addressing reasonable and customary costs of testing and treatment for reasons related to the recall, including revision surgery if necessary. DePuy has also addressed recall-related patient out-of-pocket expenses, such as lost wages and travel costs.
