You may want to learn about the latest hip replacement recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II implants. The devices were recalled in July 2012, when Stryker Orthopaedics received data showing that the Stryker hip replacements were prone to fretting, corrosion, breaks and fractures. It might also cause metallosis, a serious side effect that leads to elevated levels of toxic metal ions in the blood stream and often requiring revision surgery.

The lawyers at our firm may be able to help you get compensation for your injuries.
