Stryker Hips

Stryker Recalls Metal-on-Metal Hip Devices

email CONTACT THIS PRACTICE

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.

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.

Complications

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.

How Weitz & Luxenberg Helped Me

  • Barbara Zimmerman ‘s Story

    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.
