Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implants Recalled

Olsman Mueller Wallace & MacKenzie, P.C., is now joining a national effort to investigate the recent failure of Stryker’s Rejuvenate hip implants.  These implants were recalled by Stryker on July 6, 2012.  Unlike other recent recalls of metal-on-metal hip implants, the Stryker Rejuvenate is a ceramic-on-plastic implant.  The implant, however, has components that are titanium alloy.  These components are causing patients who have received the implants to suffer from metallosis (metal poisoning) and other complications.  These complications result in the need for surgical revisions to remove and replace the device.  If you or someone you know received a Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant, please contact us for more information.  The Rejuvenate is also being confused by some patients with the Stryker Trident.  Because of the possible confusion, if you have a Stryker hip implant and are experiencing problems, please contact us so that we may investigate this further for you.
