Stryker hip replacement failures have been so common that the company has announced a "quiet recall" of these defective products - meaning the devices must be removed, requiring a second painful, costly and debilitating surgery.
Have you been victimized?
If you have suffered because of this defective device, you know what this means. Amnd you know this is the time for you to take action.
Total hip replacement (THR) often goes well. It involves surgically removing arthritic bone ends and damaged cartilage and replacing them with hip implants designed to replicate hip joint function.

In the case of this device, limbs are noticeably shortened - a disturbing side effect.
