Jacksonville Stryker Hip Implant Attorney

Stryker Rejuvenate Injury

Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Stem hip implants back in July 2012. These devices were designed to improve hip biomechanics and to give patients with weak hip joints stability and strength. They were recalled after numerous reports of fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction. Not all patients who have received Stryker hip implants will need additional medical attention, but some have experienced severe side effects and negative consequences from these defective devices.

Contact the defective medical product lawyers at Farah & Farah if you have suffered an injury or worse due to the Stryker hip implants. You may be eligible to receive significant financial compensation for your losses and future costs associated with your injury.

Hip Implant Statistics

According to the National Hospital Discharge Survey, there were over 51 million inpatient surgeries in the United States in the year 2010, including 332,000 total hip replacements. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the number of hip replacement surgeries performed in the United States increased by 30 percent from 1996 to 2006. It is unclear as to how many patients who have recently received an implant will experience severe symptoms, but Stryker does make some of the most popular implants on the market.

Why These Devices are Dangerous

The recalled hip implants in question have metal-on-metal parts. When they rub together, they can release dangerous toxins and carcinogens into the patient’s bloodstream. Patients with Stryker hip implants can experience elevated levels of cobalt and chromium, two dangerous carcinogens that can cause organ damage. In some cases, the metal-on-metal design even results in debris being released into the body. The metal pieces can inflame or even compromise vital organs and skin tissue.

If You Have a Stryker Hip Implant

It is advisable for all patients who have a Stryker hip implant to discuss their current situation with their surgeon. If they are experiencing pain, swelling or discomfort, their device may need to be removed, and if necessary, replaced. There are specific models that have been recalled and it will be necessary to review the serial numbers of each device the surgeon has recently implanted. The FDA has also passed new regulations that will require barcodes on all medical devices. This will hopefully make it easier to track defective devices.

Rights of Injured Patients

Hip implants are designed to last 10, 15 and even 20 years. When these devices fail after only a couple of years, patients can experience significant physical and financial consequences. It is important that these victims are provided support for their medical treatment and financial losses. Furthermore, negligent product manufacturers should be held accountable for the injuries and damages their defective products cause.
