Common questions about DePuy Class Action ASR Hip Replacement

The DePuy ASR hip implants comprise a series of metal components used to replace the native hip joint and came in the form of the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System or the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip System.

The DePuy ASR hip implants were designed and manufactured to be used in total hip replacement or hip resurfacing surgery.

In December 2009, DePuy voluntarily withdrew the DePuy ASR hip implants from the Australian market.

The DePuy ASR hip implants class action was conducted on behalf of all people who were implanted with one or more of the DePuy ASR components in Australia.

You are a group member if you have had surgery to implant one or both of the following devices in Australia:

  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System; and/or
  • DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System.

If you are uncertain about what type of implant you have received, we recommend contacting your treating doctor to request this information.
