The law firm of Frankl & Kominsky can help patients recoup losses resulting from Stryker implants, including medical expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.

Problems with Stryker Implants

Medical professionals in Boca Raton and elsewhere in the country, initially sought out Stryker metal-on-metal hip implants because of claims by Stryker that the design was superior to other products on the market and that they were more durable than competitor hip implants. Stryker further asserted that the implants were ideal for younger and more active patients, who needed a long-term solution for hip replacement.

However, consumers soon learned that many Stryker products had serious deficiencies and caused major problems in many recipients. Patients reported that the products regularly failed and in many cases, metal from the implants poisoned surrounding tissue and weakened bones. Metal poisoning, or metallosis, tissue and bone death, and implant failure from osteolysis are just some of the problems reported by patients from faulty Stryker products.

After numerous consumer complaints and pressure from legal counsel, Stryker voluntarily recalled the Rejuvenate, ABG II and Accolade products. Other products, however, remain on the market.

Medical professionals now urge patients who have had Stryker implants and who are suffering from problems have those implants removed. Specifically, Boca Raton patients with hip pain or swelling, numbness, limping, or grinding in the hip joint should consult a physician regarding their implant. Doctors suggest that patients experiencing problems with hip implants undergo testing regarding those implants, even if they are not sure whether they had a Stryker implant, to determine whether complications are caused by metal-on-metal components or by other problems. Assessment by a physician can help patients avoid further injury.
