Will I Need Surgery To Repair Or Remove My Stryker Hip?
Many hip implant patients need corrective surgery, or a "revision," to explant (i.e., remove) the failing hip components and prevent or treat damage to the body, including fractures, joint instability and metallosis. In order to determine whether you need corrective surgery, you should speak to your orthopedic surgeon. S/he can explain to you the risks of a second surgery, including the fact that outcomes after a second procedure generally are not as favorable because there is less bone and more scar tissue to work with.
The trial lawyers at Bottar Leone, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict product liability cases stemming from injuries caused by products that have been recalled because they are defective. If you or a loved one have a metal-on-metal hip, including the Rejuvinate or ABG II recalled by Stryker in June of 2012, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
