Stryker hip implants and orthopedic devices have been used in millions of patients worldwide to treat injury and chronic diseases. However, the company recently recalled the popular Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement systems after studies showed serious health risks.
If you or someone you love received a Stryker hip implant, it is important to learn about your options for a Stryker hip lawsuit as soon as possible to provide for future treatment.
The Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants were designed to provide a better, more comfortable patient fit by allowing surgeons to use different-sized, interchangeable necks, stems, balls and cups. However, movement between the joined chromium, cobalt and titanium metal components can cause wear.
On July 6, 2012, Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip implant systems after warnings that the implants could experience corrosion and fretting, releasing metallic shavings into the bloodstream and surrounding tissue.
Since Stryker did not properly test these devices or warn patients of the dangers of metallic poisoning, they are liable for the damages caused. Attorneys are currently helping those affected file claims.

Recent studies have shown that the release of metallic shavings into tissue, bone or the bloodstream can cause serious side effects including allergic reactions, bone loss, soft tissue damage, vision or hearing problems, or even tumors and cancer.
As part of the recall, Stryker indicated they would halt production and sales of these hip implants worldwide. Although the company has offered reimbursement for testing and removal, they have not offered patients full compensation for metallic poisoning or their resulting damages.
While no one should file a lawsuit unless a company caused them harm, an attorney can explain how Stryker failed to adequately test these devices and now has not offered adequate help for the thousands of patients affected.
