Tens of thousands of individuals with a Wright Medical hip implant are experiencing significant health problems and devastating injuries. The defective design of Conserve & Profemur Wright implants has caused hundreds of revision surgeries and over two hundred complaints filed with the FDA. As a result, Wright Medical has been named as a defendant in thousands of lawsuits. Pope McGlamry’s hip attorneys are experts in Wright hip litigation.

Which Wright Hip Implants Are Defective?
Defective Wright Medical’s hip implants include:

Wright Hip Recalls
Wright Medical has been manufacturing hip devices since 1950, accounting for 60% of their annual sales. Unfortunately, many of these devices have caused major complications stemming from a defective design.
Has Wright’s Conserve hip device been recalled? No. Wright Technology has yet to recall the Wright Conserve Plus hip device, regardless of the large amounts of lawsuits in the pipeline and the unacceptably high failure rate.
Has Wright’s Profemur hip device been recalled? No. The FDA’s Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) has received 200+ Profemur fracture reports, yet they haven’t called for a Wright Profemur recall.
Wright Hip Failure Symptoms
Wright hips have unusually high failure rates, resulting from a variety of physical injuries & persistent health problems. Metal-on-metal hip systems can cause metal ions to leak into the bloodstream, resulting in thyroid dysfunction, renal function impairment, skin rash, depression, cognitive impairment, auditory or visual impairments, and cardiomyopathy.
The most common symptoms of a failed hip replacement may include:
- Hip or groin pain
- Difficulty walking
- Component migration or loosening
- Dislocation and/or fracture
