St. Cloud, MN (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Stryker Rejuvenate® hip replacement patients in the St. Cloud, Minnesota area are invited to a free open house from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, 2012. At the open house, they will have an opportunity to learn about filing a lawsuit against Stryker Orthopaedics.
Attorney David Szerlag will be doing short, informational presentations at 10:00 and noon to help patients understand why the Stryker hip implant products were recalled and how they can get compensation from the manufacturer, Stryker Orthopaedics. Attorneys Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag have filed lawsuits [case numbers: 008497 12, 008483 12, 008492 12, 008502 12, and others] against Stryker for several patients who had or will be having revision surgery to remove and replace the Stryker artificial hip products.
The free open house will be held at the Hampton Inn, 145 - 37 Avenue North, St. Cloud, MN. Refreshments will be served. Patients who are unable to attend this open house can contact Szerlag for a free consultation by phone at 1-888-377-8900 (toll free).
Stryker Orthopaedics recalled Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip implant products in July of 2012, due to the risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction, which may lead to pain, premature failure and other serious complications. Stryker hip replacements consist of a modular stem, neck and head. The stem is implanted in the femur, the neck is a separate part (modular) that fits in the stem and the head fits on the neck. An image of these parts can be found on the PritzkerOlsen website - "Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Lawsuit: Minnesota Lawyers for Twin Cities, St. Cloud and Rochester."
During these informational presentations, Szerlag will specifically address metal poisoning (chromium and cobalt) and hip revision surgery, which involves removing and replacing the Stryker parts. Szerlag wants patients to know that they may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, lost wages and other lawful damages.
