    Hip Replacement Information

    I see that many people are posting about hip replacement and revision surgeries and where to get accurate information. My best friend was in a skiing accident and unfortunately just found out that he was implanted with a Johnson & Johnson DePuy ASR, a recalled device. Not having any idea what to do, he turned to the web and came across www.recalledhip.com where he found a lot of great information. If you're not sure where to turn to, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
