Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Recall
Stryker Hip Replacements Cause Harm to Patients
According to the Center for Disease Control, over 330,000 Americans receive hip replacement surgeries each year. This seemingly common procedure is intended to increase mobility and reduce hip pain. But many patients are finding themselves back in the hospital from complications to metal-on-metal hip replacement surgeries.
Stryker, a company that makes hip replacement products, recalled its Rejuvenate modular-neck hip stems because of corroding metal that caused pain, swelling, and other serious medical issues in patients. If you've experienced complications with your Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement, you could be entitled to compensation.

How to Know if You're Affected
Because hip implant defects can be so dangerous to a patient's health, we suggest looking out for these symptoms:
- Pain near the site of your hip implant
- Swelling near the site of your hip implant
- Feeling tired or fatigued
- Recurring infections
- And other complications
Even if you aren't experiencing these symptoms, we recommend scheduling an immediate follow-up with your surgeon. He or she will be able to inform you of the type of hip implant you received. With possible corrosion to the implant, you could be at risk for Metallosis or metal toxicity, which can seriously impair hearing, vision, kidney functions, or even cause cardiomyopathy – a condition that weakens and enlarges the heart.
Your situation might require additional surgery to remove your Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement, which could put you at risk for serious infection or permanent disability. In addition, you'll have more medical costs piling up and more time lost to another replacement procedure. You could be entitled to compensation, so call us today.
