About Stryker Hip Implant
What Is the Stryker Hip Implant?
Stryker Corporation is the medical manufacturer responsible for creating several hip replacement devices that have recently been recalled. These devices were recalled after they were associated with causing extreme pain in patients who underwent hip replacement surgery. Some patients had to undergo revision surgery in order to correct their injuries.
The modular-neck hip stems that have been recalled include:
- Rejuvenate modular-neck hip stems
- ABG II modular-neck hip stems
- Accolade modular-neck hip stems
Studies began to link these metal hip devices to serious injuries in patients around the world—even injuries that were debilitating or required revision surgery. Some patients began filing lawsuits against Stryker Corporation. The Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems were recalled in 2012—but not before thousands of injuries were already being reported by patients who received the devices.
Legal History of the Stryker Hip Implant
Stryker settled several thousand cases in November 2014 for a total of $1.43 billion. Please note, however, that this sum is not capped. Many attorneys predict the final payout will be higher. Plaintiffs may receive around $600,000 each, depending on injuries and other specifics related to their case.
