DuPuy knee replacements systems are have been found to fail prematurely, just months or years after implantation, causing severe pain as well as permanent tissue and bone damage. Defective DePuy knees necessitate revision surgery, a complicated and invasive surgery followed by a long recovery period. Whereas patients implanted with DePuy knee systems expect the knee replacement parts to last 15 years, many patients have been forced to undergo painful revision surgery in the first year or two after implantation. DePuy Attune and DePuy Sigma systems have been found to fail prematurely, and multiple DePuy knee recalls have been issued.
DePuy is a subsidiary of the global pharmaceutical giant, Johnson & Johnson. For decades, J&J enjoyed a status as a trusted household name. A recent deluge of product recalls has changed the public's perception for the worse. Critics say J&J officials were aware of the danger of early DePuy knee failure long before the public was warned. DePuy itself has already faced extensive legal troubles for faulty joint replacement parts. In 2013 the company paid $2.5 billion to settle more than 8,000 DePuy lawsuits for early failure of its hip replacement systems. Persons who were implanted with a faulty DePuy joint were awarded, on average, over $300,000 each for the pain damage suffered, as well as financial losses due to high medical bills and long rehabilitation time.
