Stryker Hip Implant News: Rottenstein Law Group LLP Applauds Consumer Reports’ Call for Metal-on-Metal Hip Manufacturer Accountability
The firm is actively filing Stryker ABG II and Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits for those who have suffered serious complications allegedly caused by the metal-on-metal hip device recalled in 2012.
(PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Metal-on-metal hip implant patients are increasingly required to go under the knife for revision surgery that they must pay for, prompting the non-profit Consumers Union’s Safe Patient Project to call for warranties guaranteed by the manufacturers of devices such as the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains a Stryker lawsuits and side effects website at http://www.stryker-lawyer.com, supports efforts that seek to hold device manufacturers accountable for allegedly defective products.
Metal-on-metal hip replacements were supposed to last longer than their ceramic and plastic counterparts, but data from several countries proved otherwise, according to a statement from the Consumers Union, the public policy branch of Consumer Reports magazine.* Of all the metal-on-metal hip replacement procedures performed in the United States, nearly 20 percent are revision surgeries (that is, surgeries that serve to fix problems with the devices), Consumers Union said.
