Problems with your Pinnacle Cup artificial hip joint?
Although DePuy has not recalled the Pinnacle hip replacement system, more than 1,500 recipients have registered complaints of hip failure or complications. These reports parallel many of the same problems with the ARS hip replacement products that were recalled in 2010.
If you are in severe pain or cannot walk or stand, it may be a sign of bone fracture or failure of your artificial hip joint. If you have any symptoms at all associated with your Pinnacle hip replacement, you may be entitled to compensation, including surgical remedy and damages for your suffering.

Most problems with the Pinnacle hip replacement system have stemmed from metal liners used in the Pinnacle’s cup system (socket). The metal liner is apparently more prone to slippage, and the grinding action has been linked to metallosis (metal poisoning) when particles have leached into the bloodstream. Patients have reported pain, swelling, difficulty walking, inability to bear weight on the hip, and other issues. Failure of the device can also cause fracture or degradation of the surrounding bone tissue, making revision/replacement surgery more difficult or impossible.
