Stryker Hip Recall law firm Steinger, Iscoe & Greene has added new information to its Stryker hip recall-specific web pages. Visitors to the site will find updated information about the hip replacement system recall and hip recall lawsuits. Stryker had voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG-II modular neck-stem hip replacement systems from the market in July 2012 due to potential serious health risks according to Fox News.
“Those affected by the Stryker hip recall will find the website has been updated with current news on the recalled devices and information on their legal options if they are considering filing a Stryker hip recall lawsuit,” said Stryker hip recall attorney Gary Iscoe, a founding partner of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene.
According to Stryker, patients with the Rejuvenate and ABG-II modular neck-stem hip replacement systems may develop adverse local tissue reaction, in addition to possible pain and/or swelling in or around the hip area. A medical issue allegedly linked to the hip implants is metallosis, which occurs when metal rubs against metal within the device, releasing heavy metal particles in the blood.
“Many, if not all, people with a recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG-II hip replacement system will require revision surgery and the rehabilitation that accompanies such a procedure,” said Iscoe. “We want to get them the compensation they deserve for their lost time and money, as well as pain and stress. Medical devices must be approved by the FDA, but the manufacturer of the device is ultimately responsible for the safety of the product.”
Steinger, Iscoe & Greene represents individuals in lawsuits against defective medical devices. The firm is currently offering free Stryker hip recall lawsuit reviews to individuals who suffered serious complications linked to defective Stryker products, including the recalled Rejuvenate and AGBII modular neck-stems.
According to WebMD, hip implants can last 10 to 20 years or longer. A number of Stryker Rejuvenate hips were found to be failing in less than five years.
According to Orthopedic Design & Technology magazine (ODT), Stryker Corporation had $8.3 billion in sales in 2011.
Stryker hip recall lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene are seeking compensation for all medical expenses and lost wages, plus compensation for any pain and suffering Stryker hip implant victims must endure.
