DePuy hip recall: Patient shares horror story with Senate panel (MassDevice)

Katie Korgaokar captures the attention of a Senate panel examining medical device safety on Capitol Hill with her story of a faulty ASR hip implant made by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., accusing the surgeon who implanted the device of receiving more than $600,000 in consulting fees from DePuy.

“Recalls were for dishwashers and cars, not body parts,” Korgaokar told the U.S. Senate’s Special Committee on Aging today.
