What Stryker hips have been impacted by the FDA recall, and how do I know if I have one?
Stryker Rejuvenate hip implants were used by orthopedic surgeons beginning in 2008 to assist patients in regaining their ability to walk and restoring hip functions. Individuals who have had a hip implant typically face medical issues like severe rheumatoid arthritis, osteonecrosis, an injury or bone tumors causing the destruction of the hip joint.
Your doctor may have recommended that you have a hip implant to deal with these medical issues or other issues. If you want to know whether you have a Stryker hip implant, then you can call the health center or medical office in which your operation took place. An administrative assistant should be able to refer to your patient file to see details in regards to your hip implant surgery.
