Stryker Hip Replacement & Revision Surgery
Last month, the 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.
Because corrosion can cause extensive damage to the tissue and bone, many patients require hip revision surgery. Hip revision surgery involves removing and replacing the defective Rejuvenate parts.
If you have had a hip replacement or hip revision surgery, you have the right to file a claim against Stryker for compensation. Visit our Stryker Hip Implant Recall page for more information and to contact us today for your free consultation.
