At Kershaw, Cook & Talley, LLP, we represent hundreds of individuals with defective hips. After reviewing thousands of medical records, and speaking with numerous orthopedic surgeons, we discovered alarming variations in the way orthopedic surgeons care for patients implanted with Stryker Rejuvenate or ABGII hips. There are surgeons who are aggressive in their treatment and opt for revision surgery. Others, err on the side of caution and closely monitor their patients via repeat blood tests, XRAYS, and physical examination. In addition, many surgeons have little information on the most recent science regarding cobalt and chromium toxicity, and the impact these metals can have on your body.
For your convenience, we compiled a list of questions every Stryker patient should ask their surgeon. This ensures your clinician is taking the appropriate steps necessary for your treatment while aiding an understanding of his or her opinions with respect to your hip. We hope these questions are helpful. If you have any comments or concerns about your doctor’s answers to these questions, please feel free to contact us at 888-635-3970 or fill out our contact form.
