Lawsuits being brought by people who believe that their serious and long-lasting injuries are due to hip replacement implants manufactured by Stryker Orthopedics have begun to flood America’s courts. These suits have been filed on behalf of plaintiffs from Florida, Minnesota, and Arizona to name a few. All of these lawsuits allege that Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant devices surgically implanted between 2009 and 2011 have caused injuries including:
Alleged Injuries Associates with Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Include:
- Bone Damage
- Tissue Damage
- Squeaky Joints
- Difficulty Walking
- Metal Poisoning
It is alleged that these either broke or fell out of place, causing serious infections that, in some cases, have required premature revision surgeries. Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate hip implant this past July because component parts of the device were vulnerable to corrosion and other issues that put patients at serious risk.
The corrosion of Rejuvenate hip implants is allegedly due to the metal-on-metal design of the implant, which causes metal fragments to break off and cause inflammation and metal poisoning in the organs surrounding the device. The Rejuvenate (and other all-metal hip implants) have also caused patients to develop tumor-like growths and fluid build up surrounding the device.
Prior to the recall, the Stryker hip implant product was the company’s most popular product and while the number of patients who were treated with the hip implant is not known for sure, it is likely a great number.
