I was told I need a revision surgery to remove a defective hip, what should I do?

Some patients with Stryker, DePuy and other metal hip devices now require a surgery to remove the defective device and install a new one. The procedure is referred to as a revision surgery.

Before you schedule a revisionary hip surgery, you may wish to consult with a hip recall attorney who can make arrangements to have the removed device stored and protected for future use in a lawsuit. Without preserving a defective hip device, there is no protocol in place to protect the hip and consequently a valuable piece of evidence could be lost.
