Stryker hip implants are used to replace part or all of a patient’s damaged hip. These hip implants can be highly beneficial for patients who suffer from severe hip pain and significant loss of mobility. The surgery and recovery are substantial, involving incisions, healing and ultimately physiotherapy to regain strength and normal functioning. It involves a major commitment on the part of the patient to undergo such surgery and the therapy that follows it.

It’s understandable, then, that when the implant causes problems and requires repeat surgeries, patients are upset and concerned. Defective implants have been a major concern for patients who have used Stryker hip implants. Since 2005, Stryker hip implants have been the target of many complaints, such as:

  • Pain around the surgery site;
  • Parts breaking off in the body;
  • Parts wearing in an uneven fashion, causing pain;
  • Squeaky joints;
  • Improper fittings causing bone fractures.
