In June 2012, Smith & Nephew made a global recall of the metal cup component of its R3 Acetabular System hip replacements. In a statement indicating the recall, Smith & Nephew claimed that affected individuals who obtained an R3 hip implant had recorded greater rate of issues with the system compared to other hip replacements.Individuals who go through difficulties with a recalled Smith & Nephew hip replacement device have been encouraged to consult with their physicians to find out if there are any specific issues with the system. Although not all people with an R3 Acetabular Device will need the system to be modified, speaking with a health care professional can help patients to decide whether they may need modification surgery to correct issues with their implant.In case you or someone you love obtained a recalled Smith & Nephew hip replacement unit, get in touch with a lawyer or a medical professional to speak if there are any problems with the devices or to consult for a smith and nephew lawsuit.
