DePuy has yet another implant device that has proven problematic for many of its recipients. The DePuy Pinnacle Acetabular System is a metal-on-metal design similar to the DePuy ASR device. Patients have reported a range of symptoms, all similar to the previously recalled DePuy implants. Although the Pinnacle device has not been recalled yet, it is becoming more likely that DePuy will acknowledge the defectiveness of this implant. The inability to walk, excruciating pain, and the severe levels of chromium and cobalt in patients’ blood are warnings to patients with this implant to seek immediate medical attention before the implants deteriorate their health even further.
Even if you are not experiencing problems, you need to be aware that there are potential dangers with the Pinnacle implants. Contact the lawyers at Parker McDonald, P.C. and Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison, P. C to have your claim assessed. We aim to act proactively on your behalf to prevent you from succumbing to future health related issues.
