The Rottenstein Law Group monitors news related to the DePuy ASR hip recall and has learned that in the ongoing trial in Los Angeles Superior Court a surgeon testified that a DePuy executive allegedly warned him of the recall* before the move went public.

Dr. Craig Swenson, who said he had performed 200 DePuy ASR XL surgeries, testified that DePuy President David Floyd had lunch with him in March 2010, about five months before the recall. He told Swenson that sales of the ASR were to cease, but he did not tell Swenson why, according to Bloomberg. Swenson also testified that he stopped using the ASR as a hip implant because patients complained of potential side effects such as pain and high levels of metal ions in the bloodstream. Previous testimony indicated that DePuy knew of the high risks and side effects well before the recall.**
