New Lawsuit Filed Against Stryker Orthopedics over Defective Hip Implant

New lawsuits have been filed against Stryker Orthopedics, alleging damages and injuries from a Rejuvenate hip implant. The Plaintiff, a Tennessee man, claims he suffered injuries, including deep pocket swelling, fluid build-up, and fretting and corrosion of the join, which required corrective and ongoing medical treatments, rehabilitation, and medicine. He seeks damages in excess of $75,000 to cover necessary medical expenses and pain and suffering.

The new suit against Stryker is not a surprise. In April 2012, Stryker Orthopedics issued an urgent safety notice that its Rejuvenate hip implants were causing heavy metal contamination in individuals that had received the implants.  The safety notice warned that heavy metals released in the body from the devices could cause tissue death, metallosis, and the formation of psuedotumors.  In July 2012, Stryker issued a recall of the Rejuvenate hip implants.
