Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Replacement Lawsuit: Lawyers for CentraCare and Mayo Clinic Patients

Update: On November 3, 2014, Stryker agreed to pay a settlement to patients who needed revision surgery to remove a recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABGII hip implant. You can call 1-888-377-8900 for more information.

Minnesota lawyer Fred Pritzker and his Hip Recall Law Team are representing dozens of Minnesota patients in cases against Stryker Orthopaedics, Inc. These claims involve the 2012 recall of Stryker hip replacement products, including Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems.

Many of our clients had hip replacement surgery at St. Cloud Hospital (CentraCare Health System) and Immanuel-St. Joseph’s in Mankato, MN (Mayo Clinic Health System), where the Stryker hip products were implanted.

The Stryker Rejuvenate recall was announced in July 2012 by Stryker and the FDA after reports of hip replacement failure due to corrosion at modular neck junction. This corrosion released chromium and cobalt ions into surrounding tissue, bone and, in some cases, blood, causing metallosis, or metal poisoning. Chromium and cobalt poisoning can kill the tissue surrounding the hip implant, causing it to come loose. The only recourse is revision surgery, where the defective Stryker products are removed and replaced.

Many of our clients have already had hip revision surgery, and many more are scheduled to have it done. Our clients trusted Stryker to provide a safe, effective product, but Stryker did not. We allege Stryker was negligent in putting the recalled products on the market.
