Stryker Hip Failure Lawsuit Lawyers for Patients in St. Cloud, Minnesota

Lawyers Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag are representing people whose Stryker Rejuvenate modular neck/stem hip implant failed, including people from the St. Cloud, Minnesota area that had hip revision surgery at St. Cloud Hospital. If you have had a total hip replacement, you will probably know that this product consists of a femoral stem and a modular neck (the part that connects to the hip implant “head”). The femoral stem is implanted into the femur, the bone of the upper leg. The modular neck fits into that stem and an artificial femoral head then fits into the modular neck.

Stryker Hip Failure and Revision Surgery

What is happening to patients is fretting (wear) of the modular parts, leading to corrosion and the release of metal ions (chromium and cobalt) into the surrounding tissue and bone. The corrosion can then lead to the fracture of the femoral stem or extensive damage of the tissue and/or bone. Because if this, many patients are needing revision surgery (removal and replacement of the defective Rejuvenate parts).

Revision surgery in these cases requires removal of the Stryker Rejuvenate femoral stem from the bone. The surgery is further complicated in cases where the chromium and cobalt ions have damaged or destroyed bone and surrounding tissue.

If you have had hip revision surgery or are going to be having this surgery, you have the right to sue Stryker (and others) for compensation. You trusted the company to provide you with a good hip implant product, and they did not. The Stryker recalled these hip implant products in July 2012 after many reports of hip failures just like yours.
