Stryker Hip Replacement in Delray Beach
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 300,000 individuals ages 45 and over have total hip replacements every year. Delray Beach residents and those who visit Delray Beach medical facilities are among the thousands of patients who undergo that procedure. While a successful replacement can improve health, mobility and reduce pain, a faulty replacement can cause significant complications and leave patients in extreme pain, forcing the patient to undergo additional surgery to remove the faulty part and replace it with another.
Stryker Orthopedics, one of the medical companies that produces artificial hip replacement systems, has recalled several of its products thanks to consumer concerns and significant failures in patients. These hip implants have caused major problems, leading not only to additional medical costs, but also to pain and suffering by patients.

Without intervention, patients who received a faulty Stryker implants can suffer serious damage. The primary problem with the Rejuvenate, ABG II and Accolade systems is corrosion from metal pieces shedding from the device and entering other parts of the body.
The potential negative impacts of a faulty Stryker implant include a number of possible problems. For example, metal pieces from the replacement can shed particles of potentially poisonous metals, causing tissue poisoning. That can kill tissue around the area, dissolve surrounding bone tissue, contaminate the blood stream, cause growths in the surrounding area, or lead to weakened bones.
All of these complications are serious and can impact patients in Delray Beach, Florida, and around the country.Stryker Recalls
