Stryker Hip Implant – Oklahoma Injuries
If you live in Oklahoma and have had hip replacement surgery using a faulty model of a Stryker device, you may have already experienced complications. The models that were the subject of a voluntary recall by Stryker are the Stryker Rejuvenate and the Stryker ABG II. In 2012, only 3 years after gaining approval by the FDA, these models were recalled because of complications reported by patients including hip dislocation, bone fractures and metallosis. Needless to say these complications were accompanied by severe pain in most cases.
These devices have been found to fail in thousands of patients due, in part, to metal moving parts that can shed tiny particles of metal as they rub together. This sometimes causes a condition called metallosis as the metal particles are absorbed by the body.
Consumers in Oklahoma are protected from faulty products, including faulty medical devices by various state and federal laws. If you have a Stryker hip replacement device and have suffered any adverse effects you have a right to sue for damages. Understandably the prospect of confronting a giant corporation is daunting and is well outside of the resources of most individuals and small law firms. This is where Meyers & Flowers can help.
Success in personal injury lawsuits against these corporations is due in large part to the resources of the law firm. At Meyers & Flowers we have a long history of representing victims of faulty products and medical devices marketed by giant corporations. We have the resources to aggressively conduct law suits against these large corporations that vigorously defend any attempt at recovering damages. As a result we have obtained millions of dollars for our clients, allowing them to move forward free of financial burdens.
The device is the problem, not the surgery
For many people, hip replacement surgery is a life changing event returning mobility and lessening pain. In Oklahoma there are many top tier medical centers producing excellent results in their hip replacement patients.
One hospital in Oklahoma City found that 90 to 95% of their patients experienced significant relief of pain and a marked increase of mobility following hip replacement surgery.
How disappointing to then find the properly implanted device fails or is causing illness, requiring additional surgery to fix problems created by the device itself.

Do I have a case?
If you have a Stryker hip implant device but are unsure if it is one of the recalled models, your physician should be able to provide you with this information. At Meyers & Flowers we can help you determine the model if you cannot get this information from your doctor.
Initially there was a billion dollar settlement for patients who had discovered problems and filed claims before November 2014. For those patients who discovered problems after this date, a Stryker hip replacement lawyer can help Oklahoma residents with a separate claim under personal injury law. The court is aware of the fact that not all devices would fail at the same time.
