Over 30,000 Defective Stryker Hip Implants Still Implanted

Stryker Corporation, one of the world’s largest artificial joint manufacturers, recalled two hip implant systems in 2012.  The Stryker hip implants recalled were the:

  • Rejuvenate Hip Implant System by Stryker; and
  • ABG II Hip Implant System by Stryker.

The company has settled many claims brought by people with these artificial hip implants.  Many more people that still have these defective hips have not received the compensation they deserve. If you suspect that you or a loved one may have one of the potentially fatal hip implants, call our office at (770) 727-5550 or CHAT LIVE with someone from our office to let us help you get the information you need.

Stryker Hip Implant Problems

The necks of these Stryker hip implant systems are made of the chromium and cobalt, which are soft metals.  The stems are coated with titanium, which is one of the hardest metals.  After hitting the market, information came trickling in that the Rejuvenate and ABGII systems were causing metallic debris to be shed in to the body, specifically cobalt and chromium.  Some of the metals were being absorbed into the tissue and bone surrounding the hip implants.  This caused patients to suffer from neurological and heart problems, as well as damage to their kidneys, spleen, liver, and kidneys.

Do You Have a Stryker Hip Implant?

Many people have already obtained hundreds of thousands of dollars for receiving the defective hip implants.  If you or a loved one has had hip replacement surgery, medical records should be carefully reviewed to see if either of these Stryker hip implants were used.  If you need help determining which hip implant you received, The Parian Law Firm, LLC can help.  Our attorneys and staff are available any time to walk you through the process of identifying your implant.
