Synovo Hip System Concerns

After tackling defective hip implants over the past 15 years, another implant manufacturer is under the gun. Affected patients are filing lawsuits against Synovo Total Hip Replacement System (THS). The lawsuits claim that the Synovo THS uses modified components that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved.

The lawsuits also claim that the THS has not been sufficiently tested and that the safety and effectiveness of the modified parts have not been proven.

What is the Synovo lawsuit about?

As with all the previous lawsuits against hip manufacturers over the past 15 years, this is nothing new. These hip implant companies take shortcuts in their rush to get to the marketplace, do insufficient or incomplete safety testing, find out problems or defects with their product and fail to notify the FDA or the public.

The Synovo hip implant lawsuits are primarily related to issues with the Synovo Total Hip System, which was altered from its original design approved by the FDA. These modifications, made in 2019, have raised concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the implants.

The FDA warned healthcare providers not to use the Synovo Total Hip Resurfacing System due to these significant changes, which could lead to device failure and require patients to undergo costly and complex revision surgeries.

Patients who received these implants and experienced complications, such as pain, loosening, grinding noises, or difficulty bearing weight, may be eligible to file lawsuits against the manufacturer. These lawsuits aim to provide compensation for the injuries and financial burdens caused by the potentially defective devices.

The Synovo lawsuit is over Synovo’s THS using hip implant components that were modified from what the FDA approved. Unfortunately, the safety and effectiveness of these modified parts haven’t been proven yet. Patients with Synovo’s THS implant may experience pain, difficulty bearing weight, or weakness in the hip area. Some may even need surgery to correct the device.

Synovo Hip System Concerns. FDA Recommends Not Using Synovo THS

The FDA was notified in 2022 that significant modifications had been made to the Synovo Femoral Resurfacing Cup, the Acetabular Fixation Cup, and the Acetabular Bearing parts of their Total Hip System hip implant.

After an investigation, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to Synovo. The Warning Letter listed several violations and instructed the company to immediately stop manufacturing the modified devices and take prompt action to correct the violations addressed in the letter.

In January 2024, the FDA recommended that orthopedic providers stop using Synovo Total Hip Replacement System implants and closely monitor patients with the device.

According to the FDA’s investigation, significant changes have been made to three components of Synovo hip devices after getting the FDA approval. The FDA has called the safety and effectiveness of the Synovo THS implants into question.

The FDA’s investigation found the following three components of Synovo devices may have been altered:

  • Acetabular Bearing
  • Acetabular Fixation Cup
  • Femoral Resurfacing Cup

The FDA has stressed that if the Synovo THS is made with parts that don’t meet FDA standards, the THS device may break down or fail to function properly.
