Cleveland Personal Injury Lawyers Provide Legal Expertise for Patients with Recalled Stryker Hip Implants
CLEVELAND, Ohio – August 9, 2012 – Recent news about the dangers of metal on metal hip replacement implants has caused Stryker Orthopaedics to voluntarily recall its Rejuvenate Modular Hip System. The Cleveland personal injury lawyers from Lowe Eklund Wakefield & Mulvihill Co., LPA are using their 35 years of experience to advise and protect the health of patients affected by this recall.
In July 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics recalled its Rejuvenate Modular Hip System, which includes both Stryker’s Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. The company cited “potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction” as the reason for the recall. Several users of these products have experienced pain, tissue damage and swelling, causing some to undergo additional surgery to replace the faulty implants and repair the damage. Some patients may also be at risk for metal toxicity from the implant material.
“Based on our firm’s long history of encouraging manufacturers to make safety a top priority, our product liability specialists carry special expertise in protecting the rights of patients affected by harmful surgical implants,” explained Ryan Fisher, a partner with the firm. “Ranked by U.S. News & World Report on its ‘Best Law Firms’ list three years in a row (2010-2012), our firm is ready to advocate for clients affected by this recall and obtain the maximum compensation possible.”
