DePuy ALTRx Prosthetic Hips

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are Prepared To Take Your Case

Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP is investigating cases on behalf of patients implanted with prosthetic hips made by DePuy Orthopedics – a Johnson & Johnson Company. Specifically, there have been an extremely high number of reports that DePuy’s ALTRx polyethylene hip liners have broken into pieces inside of patients.

The ALTRx polyethylene liner is part of DePuy’s Pinnacle Hip System. “Polyethylene” is simply a type of plastic. DePuy’s Pinnacle Hip System has already had many problems relating to the use of metal liners, but now the polyethylene (plastic) liners are failing at an increasingly high rate.
