DePuy hip replacement defect: Are you a victim?

If you opt for any type of hip replacement surgery, you expect to feel better after the procedure. Sure, there is a recovery period, but as the days go by, you hope to regain the level of health you've been expecting.

Unfortunately, the DePuy hip replacement could have the opposite effect on your life. Rather than feel better after the surgery, you may realize that something is very wrong.

Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with a defective DePuy hip replacement implant:

  • Swelling
  • Clicking
  • Popping
  • Discomfort that never goes away
  • Pain when you first stand up or wake up in the morning
  • Dislocation of the implant
  • Hip fracture
