Problems with Stryker Hip Implants
In 2012, Stryker Corporation issued a recall of their hip implant devices, including Rejuvenate, ABG II and Accolade products. This recall came after thousands of consumers complained of complications and pain.
In the lawsuits, the company was accused of designing a defective product with numerous health risks, namely from its metal-on-metal design. It is estimated that Stryker has paid out over $1 billion in settlements to injured patients.
Complications reported by patients with Stryker hip implants:
