Stryker Hip Replacement Parts Recalled

In July of 2012, Stryker Howmedica Corporation, a leading manufacturer of hip implant products, announced a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants. According to the Stryker website:

This voluntary recall was initiated due to the potential risks associated with modular-neck stems. These risks include the potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling.

These Stryker implants, along with other metal-on-metal hip implants such as the DePuy ASR, are connected to infections, soreness, hip implant failure, and other health issues.

If you have had a hip replacement involving the Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II, visit our Stryker Hip Implant Recall page for more information and to contact us today for your free consultation.
