Several hip replacement devices have been recalled in recent years from manufacturers including DePuy, Stryker, Smith & Nephew, Wright, and Zimmer Durom. Unfortunately, these recalls occurred after thousands of people had already received the faulty devices. Some of the injuries that prompted hip replacement recalls include inflammation of the joint, serious infections, loss of mobility, and damage to the surrounding bone and tissues.
