Evidence has indicated that patients typically suffer from new pain within the eight months following a Stryker Rejuvenate recalled hip implant.

This substance is directly linked to the metal that is found in the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant. Also, doctors have discovered the corrosion of metal in the femoral neck-body of the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant.

The corrosion of these metal components is what is causing patients to experience high degrees of pain and injuries. Other injuries that patients have suffered from this corrosion are nerve damage in the hip joint area and fractures in the hip bone. Metal poisoning is one of the most severe illnesses that can affect people who have defective Stryker Rejuvenate Recalled Hip Implants.
