Recent Implant Recalls

Q: What implant was used in my hip replacement? I was reading about the J&J recalls in the news. Where can I get this information?

A: I have never used the J&J Depuy ASR implants that have been recalled. Hopefully that puts your mind at ease. As for the exact parts, you should be able to get a complete list of components on your operative note, which is kept on file at both the hospital and the clinic.

I have been getting many inquiries about this and concerns regarding metal-on-metal implants. I will be posting a more detailed response soon.
