When medical care fails...

DePuy Manufacturing started designing and building fiber splints to replace wooden barrel staves that were used to set fractures. It has been operating to several countries around the world. Isn't it grand? The franchise was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998, and formed part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices & Diagnostic group.

I've known J&J since I was a child. It manufactures lots of products here in the Philippines. Well, it's a prestigious company, yes. So, I was surprised to read about DePuy having announced a voluntary recall last August of this year. It was about the high rate of hip replacement failure using that ASR system.

Because of what happened, it is necessary for every victim to find the appropriate lawyers for the DePuy hip replacement lawsuit. Justice is what's needed here. They can't just get away with that. When we consider health our wealth, isn't it right that we demand the proper amount of medical care?
