Q: I suffered a femoral fracture as a result of my Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant revision surgery. Can the complications of this revision surgery be included in my claim?
A: Hip revision surgery in the case of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants systems are more complicated than most metal-on-metal hip implant revision surgeries. That’s because Stryker’s implants are different. Where most metal on metal implants have a single monolithic stem, where the neck and the stem are all one piece, Stryker’s implants are a modular system, with a stem and a separate neck, enabling the doctor to put in different neck lengths to customize to the patient’s needs. But what started out as a revolutionary idea, turned out to be deadly for some patients.
