MicroPort Hip Implant Recalled due to Spontaneous Fracturing

After complaints started rolling in over MicroPort Orthopedics’ fracturing hip implants, the FDA promptly issued a Class 1 recall – the agency’s most stringent – of the ProFemur Long Cobalt Chrome 8 Degree Varus and Valgus Modular Neck devices. The modular neck of the device is the culprit, as it may spontaneously fracture and cause recipients great pain, instability and difficulty walking, and, as the FDA’s Class 1 recall designation indicates, may result in serious injury or death.

If you received a ProFemur hip implant manufactured by either MicroPort or Wright Medical – and your implant has fractured or you have been alerted by your doctor that you are at risk for a fracture – please call 844-256-6918 to speak with an experienced attorney about your potential legal claim.
