Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits in Chicago, Illinois

Levin & Perconti is currently investigating claims for individuals throughout the country who have been injured by a recalled Stryker Orthopaedic Rejuvenate Modular Hip Implant or ABG II modular-neck hip system.

The medical device manufacturer recalled its metal hip implants in July 2012 after a number of recipients experienced problems and complications with the devices. These problems include:

  • Swelling
  • Discomfort
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Trouble walking

The recalled metal-on-metal hip devices are modular-neck stem hip replacement systems that can corrode. When this corrosion occurs, the hip device sheds metal particles onto the tissue surrounding the implant, and this can lead to serious health issues.

Metallosis As a result of metal particles being present in the joint, inflammation can occur. This process is known as metallosis.

Necrosis Metal-on-metal corrosion can also cause the tissue around the implant to die.

Osteolysis Another complication is osteolysis, or bone loss that arises from the body’s reaction to the metal particles.

All of these issues may lead to pain, instability or even dislocation of the device. People who received a defective Rejuvenate hip system often experience severe discomfort and pain, and many eventually require surgery to replace the defective device.

The Stryker Rejuvenate hip system is one of the most widely-used hip implant systems in the country, so the Stryker Orthopaedic Rejuvenate Modular Hip Implant recall will likely affect thousands of people who received these devices. It is estimated that nearly 20,000 people received this type of implant.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
