Attorneys Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag are our lead lawyers for these cases.

“Our clients trusted Stryker to provide a safe hip implant product,” said Fred, who, along with David, won $45 million for clients injured by another defective medical product. “Instead, their hip replacements failed. Many of our clients have had revision surgery to remove and replace the Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II modular-neck and stem, both recalled last year. Others will be having this surgery in the near future.” You can contact Fred and his team for a free case review (click here now).

The Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip replacement products involved in these lawsuits are artificial hip replacement devices consisting of two basic components: a chrome cobalt neck that is inserted into a titanium stem. These products can be used interchangeably with a number of Stryker bearing surface components, which comprise the ball and an acetabular cup or socket.

The titanium stem was manufactured to utilize a titanium alloy only used by Stryker, the “recipe” for which Stryker protected under U.S. patent laws.  Before the company recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck and stem products, its marketing to doctors emphasized the uniqueness of this titanium alloy, claimed that it was both stronger and less rigid than other titanium alloy and claimed that the company had tested and proven the alloy to resist fretting (wearing away of metal due to the rubbing caused by normal use) and corrosion, according to the lawsuits.

The lawsuits allege that despite the company’s claims about its titanium alloy, its recalled hip implant products did not resist fretting and corrosion. In fact, the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II recall lawsuits allege, the metals on the products did wear away, causing tiny particles of cobalt and chromium to seep into surrounding tissue, bone and blood (the blood then spread these metal ions to other parts of the body).  The result was, according to lawsuits filed against Stryker, metallosis (metal poisoning), which can cause necrosis of tissue and bone, pseudotumors, extreme pain, and other injuries.

Many of our cases involve hip replacements performed at the following locations:

  • Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire, WI;
  • New England Baptist Hospital in the Boston, MA area; and
  • Newton-Wellesley in the Boston, MA area.
