FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The Stryker® Rejuvenate Hip Implant was voluntarily recalled by the company in July 2012, after complaints from thousands of patients who have had the products implanted.
Both doctors and patients depend upon major medical device manufacturers and the FDA to develop and approve new surgical products in the best interest of the general public. At Harrell & Harrell, P.A., our personal injury attorneys routinely monitor the favorable rulings issued by state and federal courts for lawsuits concerning harmful or negligent healthcare products and the companies that manufacture them. Our lawyers can negotiate a settlement with the big insurance companies or represent your case before the appropriate court if mediation fails.
Side Effects of Stryker® Rejuvenate Hip Implant Use
Unlike other hip implant systems, which include a one-piece neck and stem, Stryker’s Rejuvenate system includes several neck and stem components. This system was designed to give surgeons greater flexibility by offering them more anatomically correct components that can be custom-fitted to individual patients. Possible negative patient outcomes include:
- Pain and Swelling
- Bone Fractures
- Adverse Tissue Responses
- Loosening of the Implant
- Release of Toxic Metals
NOTE: In accordance with the FDA approval process, a medical device can be offered to the public without having to undergo clinical trials, if it can be shown that the product is substantially similar to a product that has already received FDA approval.
Investigating, documenting and presenting a claim involving a failed medical device can be complicated. If you or a loved one was injured by or permanently damaged due the failure of a manufacturer or seller to exercise reasonable care in providing a safe product or service, contact a liability lawyer at 904-251-1111 or 1-800-251-1111; or use this website’s Do I Have A Case form for a prompt response.
