In July 2012, Stryker issued a recall on two of their metal on metal devices called the Rejuvenate and the ABG II modular-neck hip stems. The reason for the recall is because the devices are known to cause debris to get into the bloodstream and cause side effects like metal blood poisoning, inflammation, tissue damage and more. Patients who experienced some or all of the above symptoms are typically advised by their medical advisers to get a revision surgery to remove the defective device. These surgeries should be paid for by the manufacturer and HipReplacementProblem.com is the group dedicated to getting you the lawyer you need for the case.
According to some studies, there are nearly 25,000 Stryker hip devices that are subject to the actual recall and many experts feel nearly all of these devices should be removed if they are causing issues for the patient. The financial compensation for these procedures is how HipReplacementProblem.com is helping patients.
The Stryker Corporation has agreed to pay $1.43 billion to settle lawsuits filed against them. This initial settlement was announced in 2014 and many patients have yet to recognize the issues with their implant. If you or someone you know is suffering from this unnecessary pain and discomfort, they may be entitled to significant compensation.
