If you haven’t heard the news already, Stryker is being sued by countless of lawyers for their mishap. Essentially what happened was that there was a mistake made in the bulbs that Stryker used for their hip and knee replacements.
Essentially this bulb was leaking metal into people’s blood stream. This resulted in A LOT of problems. People were getting clots, they were getting swelling, and overall were just in a lot of pain.
This was super unfortunate for the people considering this has resulted in many people having to get a second surgery. With that said, people have been researching the stryker hip recall. This research has led to people finding out all of the issues that are occurring and how much they need to change it.
Stryker also messed up again in the sense that they had a very similar problem for their knee implants. Unfortunately this led to people having to get the surgery redone, and ultimately Stryker recalled their knee replacements. This has led to a lot of lawsuits and a lot of unhappy people. It will be interested in the future to see if people are going to continue to use Stryker or not.
I know they were a big deal here in San diego for a while, but now that they have been recalled, I think it’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing too much of them anymore.
