Central government has formed a central expert panel to determine the quantum of compensation for the affected patients of faulty ASR hip implants.

This has been notified by DCG (I) Dr S Eswara Reddy on September 11, 2018.

The government has also directed states' principal health secretaries to constitute state level committees for affected patients of faulty ASR hip implants.

The central panel will be headed by Dr RK Arya, Director, Sports Injury Centre, Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi.

The panel will recommend the quantum of compensation as admissible in appropriate law and medical management of the affected patients.

It may be noted that a group of patients who suffered pain and agony due to faulty ASR hip implants, had urged Health Minister JP Nadda to make  Central Committee Report report public in the matter.

The affected patients of faulty ASR hip implants may also contact central expert panel and state level committee by writing or through emails.

These implants were marketed by Johnson & Johnson.

An eleven member committee lead by Dr Arun Kumar Aggarwal of Delhi's Mulana Azad Medical College had directed Johnson & Johnson to reimburse to the affected patients.
