One of the biggest questions for patients who have the recalled Depuy ASR hip implanted in their bodies is “will I need to have another surgery?”  A recall for a car or a toy or any other product usually means you have to bring it in for repairs.  If the recalled product is your new hip joint, that’s a bit troubling.  The answer is that not everyone needs surgery to replace the hip.  Only some patients will face this in the future.  But to be sure, you need to see your Orthopedic surgeon right away.  Take a look at the video below for details about what to do next.
