For thousands of patients, a hip replacement surgery signals the beginning of a new life of mobility and independence. However, patients who received Stryker hip implant devices may still be reeling from the injuries the implant caused—and some may never be able to regain their lost range of motion.
Although the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants were recalled in 2012, patients who received the devices reported adverse reactions almost immediately. Many of these patients were forced to undergo a second surgical procedure to remove and replace the device, causing additional pain, suffering, and extended recovery times.
Stryker hip implants have been linked to a number of serious health conditions, including:
- Severe and debilitating pain in the joint
- Fractures and deterioration of bone tissue
- Heart and kidney problems due to metal poisoning
- Tissue and bone death at the implant site
- Neurological problems as a result of metal toxicity, and
- Dislocation and loosening of the device
