Stryker Hip Implant Victims in California
Surgeons located in California have been found to install hip implants produced by Stryker Corporation. Due to the metal-on-metal grinding components, you may be prone to cobalt poisoning in the surrounding tissue. In addition to metallic poisoning, these models are liable to cause other bodily damage, including:
- Hip dislocation
- Tissue & bone necrosis (death)
- Bone fracture
- Severe pain
The two Stryker models are called the Stryker Rejuvenate and the Stryker ABG II. Both have a component called a modular neck, which is an interchangeable component. This was originally intended to give the implant adjustability so it could be more suited to a patient’s body. Unfortunately it resulted in grinding metal parts, causing the issues listed above.
Additionally, the revision surgery necessary to replace the implant is involved, coming with its own set of issues, such as:
- Higher incidence of hip dislocation
- Bone fracture
- Increased need for rehabilitation
