Stryker Corporation, a Michigan-based medical equipment firm, has developed and produced medical implants, including those for hips, knees and shoulders. Like its competitors, Stryker introduced metal-on-metal hip devices, which are now known to cause serious complications.
There is a consolidated litigation currently ongoing in the Superior Court of New Jersey and Weitz & Luxenberg is serving as lead counsel.
After numerous reports of pain, infection, and complex revision surgeries, in 2012, Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems. The firm has notified healthcare professionals of this voluntary recall.
If you received a Rejuvenate modular or ABG II modular-neck stem, you should contact your surgeon. Stryker is reimbursing affected patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other out-of-pocket costs relating to this recall.
These are the more serious complications you may face if you had a Stryker hip implant:
- Complex revision surgeries
- Fretting of materials
- Corrosion of materials
- Problems while walking or not being able to walk
- Swelling of your hip
- Loosening of the implant within your body
- Bone fracture within the implant site
- High levels of metal toxicity
There are a number of other complications you may also be experiencing. If you suspect that you are not healing the way you should, it may be time to think about talking to an attorney.
