Stryker Hip Personal Injury: Lawyers for Revision Surgery Compensation

Lawyers Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag are lead attorneys for our Stryker hip implant and revision surgery litigation team. They recently won over $40 million for patients injured by another medical product and are now accepting Stryker hip lawsuit personal injury cases throughout the United States.

Hip Replacement Recall
Stryker Hip Implants Removed from a Patient

On July 4, 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics issued a recall of two hip implant products, Rejuvenate Modular and ABGII modular-neck hip stems. Styker recalled these products because the design, a modular neck junction, can result in metal debris (chromium and cobalt ions) accumulating at the neck junction of the hip implant. This metal poisoning (metallosis) can cause tissue damage near the hip implant, some so severe that the tissue has been destroyed (tissue necrosis).
