What Are The Symptoms of A Potentially Defective Stryker Hip Implant?

Most patients who received a Stryker hip implant recovered from the initial surgery without incident.  Many patients were weight-bearing, even without physical therapy, in 1-2 weeks.  However, over the course of the next several years, many patients began to experience the following symptoms:
  • hip, leg, groin and low back pain;
  • swelling of the hip and upper leg;
  • hip weakness;
  • crepitus (a clicking, grinding, or popping sensation under the skin);
  • limping;
  • metallosis;
  • difficulty walking;
  • difficultly standing;
  • difficulty sitting; and
  • elevated levels of metal in the blood (cobalt and chromium).
