Defective Metal-on-Metal Hips Creating High Costs

The New York Times reports that the costs associated with defective metal-on-metal hips, such as the DePuy ASR, will reach into the billions of dollars in the coming years. The article explains that the failure of such hips will create increased costs for taxpayers, insureres, employers, and, importantly, the patients themeselves.

The Times reports that apporximately 5,000 lawsuits have been filed against the makers of metal-on-metal hips, inluding Johnson and Johnson, the maker of the DePuy ASR hip that was recalled last year.  According to data combined from around the globe, it is estimated that tens of thousands of patients may have to undergo revision surgery to replace defective hip implants.
