Stryker Orthopedics has recalled two of their hip implant models because of concerns about the devices being prone to corrosion that could lead to pain, swelling, and other problems for patients. The recall includes Styker’s Rejuvenate Modular and ABGII modular-neck stem devices. These devices have a femoral stem and femoral head ball connection that are both made of metal. The company has decided to stop global production of these products. Problems with metal on metal implants can include: loosening, fracturing and dislocating of the device. They have also been linked to possible blood poisoning.
In Tennessee as well as all across the country, people expect that when they need medicine for certain illnesses or medical devices such as hip implants to make their lives easier, that these things should work properly and help them. Unfortunately, however, some medical devices that are supposed to help people end up causing additional pain and problems and often require additional surgery to fix the problem. If you have experienced pain or problems after receiving a Stryker hip implant, then you should speak to a Tennessee Stryker hip recall lawyer about your concerns. They will hear your case and help to determine if you are eligible to receive compensation.
