    My cousin's friend has a symptoms with hip failure after his operation with a Stryker rejuvenate hip implant which she felt too much pain. Her doctor says that some studies from other doctors and experts suggest a connection between the absorbed metal ions and heart and neurological problems, damage to the spleen, liver, lymph nodes, and kidneys. Therefore, it became evident that the metal-on-metal devices are not as effective and safe as the makers have implied which was the cause of my friend’s family a serious problem. More and more patients reported several issues and health problems with their implants, thus filing a Stryker hip lawsuit against Stryker Corporation were find solutions to others to claim for their entitled compensation. Has anyone here who had this problem?

    Too many hip replacement surgeries going on out there anyway it seems to me. Don't know any specifics about this particular lawsuit; however, I do know a ballet choreographer who noticed that in all the cases of hip replacement surgery she'd become acquainted with in her career, the dancer in question had later damaged the pelvic bones due to impact from the metal implant. Her advice? Don't get the surgery. Do the mind-body therapy thing instead. A world-class hip man at SOAR once admitted to me that once you get hip replacement surgery you're not going to run or do high-impact dance moves ever again. Hip surgery is definitely the court of last resort IMHO considering the problems that could develop later down the pipe. Always better if you avoid intrusive procedures and heal yourself (that is, if you can do it that way). Hip replacement surgery is a modern medical miracle for a LOL with osteoporosis who's broken her hip in a fall. But what about all the 50 year old guys who seem to be getting diagnosed and operated on? Alexander's Macedonian Phalanx marched all the way to India and back to Greece and you never hear about any of those guys needing hip replacement surgery. Homo sapiens have just not changed that much since 325 BC.

    We are afraid of, if she will be part of the patients who took and filed for a Stryker hip lawsuit.

    Too many surgeries. Period. I know an avid runner who had one of those patella micro-surgeries 10 years ago: now, no more running. They've got him convinced. How can he ride his road bike on double centuries and not jog three miles? Doesn't make sense to me, but as Matthew and Forest will no doubt say, check it out first with a orthodox medical doctors to rule out real physical problems. I just wonder how many of these surgeries are done at the same moment some psychological stressor is causing the patient to go symptomatic and ask for a quick fix through surgery? I've gotten more and more skeptical I have to admit. Too many specialists going into medicine to make a buck using cookie cutter surgical approaches to pain syndromes that are really much more psychological than structural. But of course you can't really deny rheumatoid arthritis or cancer (although even they have strong psychogenic components - what they call 'psychological overlay').
