HM&M Files Suit Against Stryker Corporation on Behalf of 7 Clients

October 20, 2013  ·  By HM&M


Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. recently filed lawsuits in federal court on behalf of seven individuals who received defective Stryker hip implants. In July 2012, Stryker issued a voluntary worldwide recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants. Studies have shown that these implants corrode over time, which causes bits of metal to leak into patients’ bodies, leading to major health complications.

One of the most common health problems associated with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants is metallosis. Metallosis is an adverse tissue reaction to heavy metals in the body that can cause limited mobility, failure of the hip joint, pseudotumors, and dissolution of the bone.

Many individuals who received the Rejuvenate or ABG II implant require painful revision surgery to remove the defective device. Revision surgery is a complicated procedure that leads to a long, painful recovery.

Hurley McKenna & Mertz, P.C. strives to hold Stryker accountable for putting the Rejuvenate and ABG II implants on the market without properly testing the devices and without warning doctors and patients of the risks posed by these devices. If you believe you or a loved one may have received a defective Stryker hip implant contact us for a free consultation at 312-553-4900.
