Hip Implant Dislocation
Patients with Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II hip replacement systems may face an increased risk of hip dislocation. Stryker Corporation issued a recall of both hip replacement devices in July 2012 after it was revealed that the metal hip replacements were significantly more likely to fail than other hip implants.
Dislocation of a hip implant occurs when the femoral head slips out of the artificial acetabular cup. This can happen suddenly and result in severe pain for hip replacement patients.
Hip implant dislocation requires emergency medical attention and can harm surrounding tissues. Many patients that have experienced hip implant dislocation have had to undergo revision surgery to repair damaged issue.
If you or a loved one received a Stryker hip replacement and have experienced hip dislocation or undergone revision surgery to replace the implant, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
