DePuy Pinnacle Defects

A myriad of patient complaints have been filed with DePuy regarding the metal-on-metal Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System. Here is just a sampling of the problems associated with these hip devices: 


  • Severe hip pain
  • Complete hip implant failure
  • Inability to walk or stand
  • Loosening of the hip replacement
  • Need for hip replacement revision surgery
  • Metallosis (i.e. metal poisoning)


Like the DePuy ASR hip replacements featured in the 2010 DePuy hip implant recall, the DePuy Pinnacle device can be used with metal-on-metal components.


Reportedly, metal-on-metal hip devices can wear down releasing microscopic particles into your body. Some patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems have reported severe inflammatory reactions, or even metal poisoning. This is due to high levels of cobalt and chromium in your blood stream.
