Questions to Ask Your Doctor
Stryker Hip Implant Recall Lawyers in Sacramento
As part of our commitment to helping patients who have been injured by defective hip replacement products, we at Kershaw, Cook & Talley have compiled a list of questions that you can ask your doctor if you have a Stryker hip implant. Certain Stryker products have been recalled due to issues with metal particles being released into the surrounding tissue and the bloodstream, causing serious problems in patients and requiring revision surgery.
In handling cases of this kind, our attorneys have been astonished to find that some medical professionals are uninformed regarding the hazards of metal toxicity and their relation to hip implants. We have seen some doctors who aggressively recommend revision surgery and others who seem to want to avoid surgery at all costs. We recommend asking a number of questions before you make any decisions about revision surgery. This can help you understand whether a doctor is qualified to help and can also aid you in making the right choice about your hip implant.
