DePuy Pinnacle® Litigation


DePuy Pinnacle® is a metal-on-metal artificial hip implant. Total hip replacement surgery replaces the natural femoral head and acetabulum with an artificial head and cup system. With metal-on-metal hip implants, the friction caused by the two metal surfaces rubbing against each other while in motion may result in very small metal fragments being shed into the surrounding tissue and blood stream. This may cause tissue damage, inflammatory reactions, bone loss, necrosis and a type of blood poisoning known as metallosis.

On January 9, 2012, John R. Climaco was appointed to Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee by the Honorable Ed Kinkeade, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division in In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244 (N.D. of Texas, Dallas Division).
