Q: Which Stryker hip products were recalled?

Stryker Orthopaedics recalled its Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck and hip stem products after reports of fretting and corrosion where the neck connects to the stem (the stem is implanted in the femur). The fretting and corrosion can lead to chromium and cobalt poisoning (metalosis) as ions of those metals leach into the tissue, bone and blood.

Q: How will I know if Stryker Rejuvenate or ABGII neck and hip stems were implanted in my body during hip replacement surgery?

You may have been notified by your surgeon that you have one of these products in your body. If you are not sure, our lawyers can help you. You can contact our attorneys for a free consultation here or call them at 1-888-377-8900.

Q: What should I do if I have a recalled Stryker hip product?

If you have symptoms of pain and/or swelling in or around your replaced hip, you should contact our lawyers as soon as possible. You may need revision surgery to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip product. Because the Stryker stem has to be extracted from the femur, our clients are telling us that this is an extremely painful surgery. In addition, when there is necrosis (death) of tissue and/or bone in the area of the hip implant, these surgeries become significantly more difficult and patients will most likely continue to experience pain and have gait issues.

Q: Can I sue Stryker Orthopaedics for compensation?

Yes, if our lawyers review your case and determine that you have been harmed by the recalled Rejuvenate or ABG II products, you can sue Stryker for money to compensate you for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, loss of quality of life, and other lawful damages.

Q: How would I know if my hip implant is experiencing fretting and corrosion?

A: You may not realize that you have chromium and/or cobalt poisoning until you experience pain and swelling, so you should be tested as soon as possible. Even if that test does not find high levels of these metals, you will need to continue to be tested for as long as the recalled implants are in your body. Because of this, our lawyers are seeking compensation for all patients who had these products implanted during hip replacement surgery.

Q: I have a Rejuvenate Modular or ABG II Modular implant. Do I need revision surgery?

A: Our lawyers are helping patients find the medical help they need to determine whether hip revision surgery is necessary. You can contact them for a free consultation here.
