A growing number of individuals have reported suffering catastrophic hip implant failure after receiving a Wright Profemur hip replacement. These hip systems may fail within a few years of surgery, resulting in severe pain, additional hip revision surgery and permanent injury. The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are now reviewing and investigating potential Wright Profemur hip lawsuits for individuals who have experienced problems.


The Wright Profemur Total Hip System is designed with an adjustable femoral neck. The neck can bend and were made to be modular, so that it can be adjusted for leg length. However, it appears that the Wright Profemur neck may be prone to fracture, break, degrade, fret and ultimately fail.

An alarming number of individuals have had the femoral stem/neck snap and break during normal activities of daily life. This can lead to debilitating injuries and require risky hip revision surgery to remove the defective hip implant and replace it.

The Wright Profemur hip replacement lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are providing free consultations and claim evaluations for individuals who believe that they may have experienced problems from a Wright Profemur hip replacement, such as:

  • Failure of the Hip Implant
  • Unexplained Hip Pain
  • Loosening of the Hip Replacement
  • Hip Revision Surgery

All cases are investigated and pursued through a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are never any fees unless financial compensation is obtained for your Wright Profemur hip replacement problems.

    I am a 32 year old male who had this implant out in 2 years ago. Since then I have had nothing but pain. It has resulted in my job loss and loss of my insurance. Therefore I cant go to the doctor as I need to. I have been to my family doctor and put on pain meds ( low dose ) for some reason all docs think because of my age they treat me as a pill seeker. All l am told is it is burcitus and it will go away. I cant afford to go to the ortho doc and get xrays and other tests done, and feel completly helpless, and just take it day to day. Can someone please give me some kind of help?????? I dont want to live out life this way i have three kids and want to live an active life but cant..

    I have had the femoral stem/neck snap and break during normal activities of daily life. I merely took a step and it broke.
    My original replacement was 4 years ago.
    During the recent repair/replacement, I had the neck, socket, and ball joint removed and replaced.
    The surgeon opted not to replace the shaft as it would have required the original femur to be split and re wired to allow for a longer shaft.
    My original neck was Titanium and the new one is Cobalt.

    I am self employed with a single child and require help on how to deal with these large medical maunufacturers.

    I have had this hip for 3 years. It has failed completely causing me to be on crutches. I had revision surgery (complete) to have it completely replaced with a ceramic hip. During the procedure, the surgeon discovered an infection caused by the implant that has made go on 2 per day IV\\\’s of antibiotics. The titanium hip was completely removed, and replaced with a temporary spacer which I cannot walk on. I am in a wheelchair to get around. This antibiotic treatment is scheduled for up to 6 weeks. At that point, there will be a sample of fluid taken from the hip socket to determine if the infection is gone and then proceed with replacing the hip with the new implant from another manufacturer.

    If you know anyone with this hip implant and they notice any pain, instruct them to see their surgeon or another one to evaluate the damage.

    My hip failed in just over 3 years of normal activity.
