Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Michigan Hip Replacement Lawyers Now Accepting Stryker Hip Implant Lawsuits
Date:6/4/2013

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

The Michigan personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is now actively handling lawsuits for patients allegedly suffering from complications after having a Stryker hip replacement implanted. The hip replacement lawyers represents patients allegedly suffering complications, such as metallosis, difficulty walking or immobility, pseudo tumors, or those who have had to undergo a revision surgery due to the defective nature of the Stryker him implants.

Both the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II were voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer last year due to high failure rates and serious complications resulting from the medical device. (Click Here to view the FDA report of the voluntary recall). Both the Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II, which were designed for primary total hip arthroplasty, are metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. This means that both the “ball and socket” of the implant are both made out of metal.

Stryker was founded in 1941 and is headquartered in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The manufacturer has produced many models of hip implant devices; however the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II were the only two models that were recalled. Stryker’s website (http://www.stryker.com/en-us/products/Orthopaedics/modularneckstems/index.htm) provides information about their recall, saying “We decided to voluntarily recall the modular-neck stem hip systems because there is potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction which may lead to adverse local tissue reactions.”

There are many different complications a patient can allegedly suffer from after having a Stryker hip replacement implanted. Some of the most common alleged complications include:

  • Severe hip in hip area
  • Immobility or trouble walking
  • Metallosis (also known as metal poisoning)
  • Fluid collection in the hip area
  • Pseudo Tumors
  • Need for additional surgery/revision surgery

“Patients who allegedly suffer from complications or have to undergo a revision surgery due the defective nature of the Stryker hip replacement hip implant do have legal rights and should consult with one of our experienced defective medical device lawyers immediately. Due to the fact that Stryker hip replacement models were recalled and have been already implanted into patients, Stryker may be liable for those who do allegedly suffer complications. Often times, these lawsuits result in significant settlements, as it seeks damages for pain and suffering, as well as any medical costs incurred and future surgeries if required due to the allegedly defective nature of the hip implant,” says Partner and Attorney Lawrence J. Buckfire.
