Stryker Litigation Settlement Program will Compensate Patients for Revision Surgery

Stryker is set to proceed with a litigation settlement program to compensate patients who had to have their hip implants replaced. Patients who had to undergo surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular-Neck and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stem systems before December 9, 2016, will be receiving a payout from Stryker Corporation.

This is not the first time the medical device company has participated in a litigation settlement program. The first settlement included patients who had their revision surgery before November 3, 2014, and the program cost Stryker more than $1.4 billion.

This second settlement is slated to be even more costly. Stryker says it will likely spend between $2 billion and $2.2 in this litigation settlement program.

Dangers of All-Metal Hip Implants

All-metal hip implants used to comprise about one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements done in the U.S. each year. However, these types of implants were largely abandoned after evidence of their high failure rates and tendency to cause muscle and tissue damage began to surface.

“These systems have been known to cause serious problems in patients, from tissue damage and severe pain, to dangerous buildup of metal debris in the body. Patients who have had to undergo revision surgery for these implants should be compensated,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
