Stryker Hip Implants’ Medical Complications

Serious complications involving Stryker hip implants include:

  • Corrosion of cobalt components
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in the body
  • Disassociation of femoral head from hip stem
  • Pain requiring revision surgery
  • Adverse local tissue reaction
  • Fractured hip stem trunnion
  • Excessive metallic debris
  • Inflammatory response
  • Loss of mobility
  • Dislocation

Correcting these problems almost always requires revision surgery to remove and replace the devices.
