The US Drug Watchdog says, "We could easily have tens of thousands of US DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims, living each day in pain, with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims identified, to the best possible national caliber attorneys, and we will help with the process. We want to hear from every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, out of fear their device has started to fail, or victims may not know the warning signs of a premature failure." According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant."

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with all metal-on-metal hip implants, and because DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were surgically installed on well over 130,000 US citizens, we are doing every thing possible to get every victim of a metal on metal hip implant failure identified, so we can make sure the get to the best possible attorneys. Because living with a failed hip implant, and or hip implant replacement surgery, also known as revision surgery are such traumatic events, we are very focused on victim compensation, when it comes to any type of metal-on-metal hip implant failure, including the DePuy Pinnacle." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle, the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or any other metal on metal hip implant device that has failed please call us immediately at 866-714-6466-we do not care if the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
