Many Patients have been informed that Stryker has initiated a voluntary recall of their modular-neck hip stems. The voluntary recall was apparently initiated due to potential risks associated with the stem including fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular neck junction. This may result in adverse local tissue reactions with pain and swelling.
If you have questions about Stryker hip implants, please give us a call. McMath Woods is reviewing these cases. Also, all should recognize that there are statute of limitations issues that can defeat these claims if claimants wait too long to investigate and possibly pursue their concerns.
