On July 6, 2012, Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate Modular Hip System and its ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stem. These devices have been used since June 2008. The Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement device has been linked to an increased risk of metallosis. While the system is not a metal-on-metal hip device, it has metal-on-metal components, which are believed to cause the development of metallosis in some people. Metallosis is a medical condition involving deposition and build-up of metal debris in the soft tissues of the body.

According to reports, the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant is linked to a high early failure rates, causing some patients to undergo revision surgery. New research has shown a connection between the type of corrosion associated with the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant with soft tissue destruction. With the advent of this new research, claims against Stryker are being investigated and litigation is underway. A recent report in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery studied 12 hips in 11 patients who underwent total hip replacement with a modular femoral stem design by Stryker Rejuvenate. The system consisted of a titanium molybdenum-zirconium-iron alloy body mated with a modular cobalt chromium alloy neck. After revision surgery, all 11 patients demonstrated local soft tissue destruction with visible corrosion at the femoral neck-body junction. The patients also had increased levels of chromium, cobalt and titanium in their blood, indicated metallosis.

If you are a patient who has received a Stryker hip system, you should consider consulting with an attorney. Since the defect was acknowledged by Stryker, the interests of the company and those with the defective hip prosthetics are adverse due to the fact that the company has an interest in paying out as little as possible to resolve the case for each person. Further, Stryker benefits from a powerful position when it comes to negotiating claims directly with individuals. An attorney can assist an injured patient because of the experience and advocacy needed when litigating these types of claims.

Stryker hip failure cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that we collect nothing unless recovery is obtained for you. All Stryker hip lawsuits must be filed within a specific period of time known as a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is dependent upon the jurisdiction where the case is filed. Because the statute of limitations may vary, it is important to consult with a Stryker hip recall attorney as soon as the patient becomes aware of their circumstance.

  • Taylor Downs was easy to talk to (I do not speak the legal language well!) and was very upfront and honest about the entire process of my case. He kept me updated as the case progressed, and answered my relentless questions. The end result was a favorable settlement that I’m not sure could have been any better with anyone else. In short, go see Taylor if you have a case. Don’t be intimidated to go seek his help, he won’t blow your brains out with “legal speak”.


  • Being referred to Taylor was the best thing I could have asked for. Taylor and staff are very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend them to anyone.


  • If I ever have to go through it again I would definetly call Taylor right away. The group was so helpful through my situation and handled everything that needed to be done. They made a stressful situation a stress free situation. With Taylor you dont have to worry about one thing. Definietly would recomend to anyone.
