Which Hip Replacement Devices from Stryker Have Been Recalled?
Stryker Corporation has recalled numerous hip replacement devices, including the Rejuvenate, ABG II, and Accolade modular-neck hip stems.
What Is the Problem with These Devices?
The metal-on-metal hip replacement devices have been associated with corrosion and fretting. The pieces grind against each other and can cause the release of toxic chemicals and metal pieces into the body over time. This leads to severe pain in many patients and, in many cases, the necessity for follow-up surgery. Some patients are experiencing ongoing pain and illness as a result.
What Was Stryker’s Response?
Stryker Corporation was made aware of problems with their devices, but failed to take the devices off the market or to warn patients of the potential risks involved.
What Types of Compensation Could I Be Entitled to?
You may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including:
- Medical Costs
- Loss of Income
- Pain & Suffering
- Ongoing Care Costs
What Are the Claims Against Stryker Corporation?
Patients are now suing Stryker Corporation for misrepresenting the safety of the devices, using false marketing tactics to sell the products, and failing to act after news of the dangerous side effects caused by the devices became public.
