How do I know if I have a recalled metal-on-metal hip implant?

In the United States, most medical device companies do not keep a formal record as to who are recipients of their products. Since the initiation of the recall, many orthopedic surgeons (who do keep an inventory of their patients) have sent letters to their patients who have devices implicated by the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System or the Stryker ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stem recall.

However, even if you did not receive a notification from your physician or medical center where the surgery was performed—you may still have a device implicated by the recall. If you are unsure of the type of hip prosthesis that you have, you can contact the Stryker hip defect attorneys as Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers to help determine if you are implicated by the recall.
