Recall of replacement hip implants

January 31st 2012

Just recently there has been coverage in the media about some types of implants used in hip replacement operations.  This coverage has included publicity about how two particular types of implant, known as a DePuy ASR and DePuy ASR XL have been recalled by the manufacturer.

We would like to reassure our patients that we have never used DePuy ASR or DePuy ASR XL implants in any operations carried out at the four Care UK treatment centres that offer hip replacements.

Any patient with concerns about a previous hip replacement operation should either speak to his or her GP or contact the hospital where the procedure was carried out.
