Stryker Hip Replacement Recall

Stryker Hip Replacement Recall


LANCASTER, PA, July 19, 2012 – Stryker Orthopedics recently announced the recall of two devices used in hip replacement surgeries: Rejuvenate and ABG II.

Stryker terminated distribution of the two hip replacement devices after fears of corrosion of the metal-on-metal components, which they said could lead to pain, swelling and adverse reactions in surrounding tissue. According to Styker the recall is due to post-market surveillance, meaning that there have already been several complaints of problems with the devices.

“Hip recalls are not like bringing your car in to the shop to have your floor mats fixed, we are dealing with real human losses to real people who need help,” said Jaime D. Jackson, Esq. a lawyer at Atlee Hall, LLP who specializes in products liability.

This is not Stryker’s first recall over metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. In April, Stryker recalled the Accolade femoral stem, which was used with the MITCH TRH modular head/acetabular cup, due to significantly high revision rates.

The experienced lawyers at Atlee Hall, LLP are evaluating possible lawsuits on behalf of victims injured by Stryker’s defective hip implant components. They are dedicated to fight for the rights of all victims and get them the compensation they deserve. They are there to help the Stryker hip recall victims to navigate through the complex recall waters and help make sure their rights are protected.

  1. This approach gives excellent access to the acetabulum and femur and preserves the hip abductors and thus minimizes the risk of abductor dysfunction post operatively. It has the advantage of becoming a more extensile approach if needed. Hip Replacement Surgery

  2. Thank you sharing this post, good job. I would also like to share about knee surgery alternatives, which are less painful and more effective than the regular surgery.

  4. A hip recall is truly burdensome and not to be taken lightly especially for those who already have a recalled device in place of their real hip joint. I recommend for everyone to be informed so visit Hip Recall Updates for more info.

  6. Stryker hip replacement has been associated with many side effects and complications. Actually, many patients were suffering from too much pain because of their faulty hip replacement devices and therefore complaining and pile up a case against the manufacturer.
