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 working with patients and their health insurers to address medical costs directly associated with the recall for those patients who are not eligible for the U.S. Settlement Program. DePuy, through Broadspire, has also addressed recall-related patient out-of-pocket expenses, such as co-pays, deductible expenses, lost wages and travel costs for those patients not eligible for the U.S. Settlement Program.
