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:
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.

W&L's Ellen Relkin, as lead counsel in the NJ Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stem litigation, played a key role in negotiating the more than $1 billion settlement. Most qualifying plaintiffs will receive $300,000 or more.
W&L helped negotiate one of the largest mass tort settlements in recent history. More than 300 W&L clients are part of the settlement. Claimants had recalled DePuy ASR hips implanted and removed prior to August 31, 2013.
I'm pleased with the results Weitz & Luxenberg achieved for me in my recently settled case. I was suing a hip-replacement company that tried to act like they did nothing wrong. But the fact is they allowed a defective medical device to go out. That was incredibly wrong. This company needed to learn that their actions were incredibly wrong and that there are consequences to your bad actions.
