The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because a hip implant failure, or hip replacement surgery is such a huge ordeal, we want to hear from every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, out of fear their device has started to fail, or victims may not know the warning signs of a failure. Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility." According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. We could easily have tens of thousands of US DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims, living each day in pain, with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims identified, to the best possible national caliber attorneys, and we will help with the process."
