The flawed design of the implant systems has led to fretting and metal corrosion, which can cause serious side effects, including severe pain, possible metal poisoning, loss of range of motion, and fluid buildup.

The FDA has ordered a review of all metal-on-metal hip implants due to mounting patient complaints. We are investigating all cases involving metal-on-metal hip implants, including the DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, recalled in August 2010; the Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System, recalled in June 2012; the DePuy Pinnacle, the Zimmer Durom Cup, the Wright Conserve, and the Biomet M2A and M2A-Magnum hip replacement systems, which have not been recalled.

Also beware that the reports we are getting from some of our clients are scary, especially regarding possible metal poisoning. Black liquid is reported to have been removed from some of the surgical sites. Others report cramping, diarrhea, and pseudo-tumors at the site.

Metal poisoning occurs when friction between the metal parts releases metal ions into the bloodstream, and blood tests for chromium and cobalt have proven positive in affected patients. This risk increases with more wear or friction, which means that the most active patients are at greater risk for pain and suffering as a result of the Rejuvenate Hip Implant System.  We suggest getting back to your orthopedic doctor ASAP if you think you are affected. Get to your primary care doctor for a blood test if you suspect metal poisoning. 

If you or someone you know has received a Stryker hip implant – or has had one removed – call Law Offices of Gary Green toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN to discuss your legal options without obligation.
