Stryker Hip Replacement Recall Attorneys
2016 Stryker LFIT COCR V40 Femoral Head Recall
Stryker Orthopaedics has finally notified surgeons that they decided to voluntarily recall certain lots and sizes of their LFIT ANATOMIC COCR FEMORAL HEADS because of serious health risks to patients. Unfortunately, many Americans were implanted with this hip replacement system, and many have experienced debilitating pain or forced to undergo a second revision surgery because of design flaws in this defective medical device.
Physicians began notifying patients of this recall by letter in late September of 2016. If you received a notice of recall from your Orthopedic Surgeon, it is very important that you consult with an experienced attorney right away to ensure your legal rights are protected.

We will never refer your recalled Stryker hip case to another lawyer to handle.
Unlike many “advertising firms” who aggregate cases and refer them out, Kelley Bernheim Dolinsky, LLC handles all aspects of litigation and settlement. We have successfully handled hundreds of cases against Stryker arising out of their defective hip replacements since 2012, when the Federal Judge overseeing the National Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement litigation appointed our law firm to leadership on behalf of approximately 11,000 patients making individual defective hip claims.
In fact, our law firm has been helping individual patients (not a class action) with failed Stryker LFIT-V40 Femoral Head claims since 2012 when we first realized these devices were failing prematurely. Well before this recent voluntary recall by Stryker, we invested in retaining world-class experts (medical, biomechanical engineering, metal toxicity, physical rehabilitation, economics, etc.), to support our claims and initiated lawsuits against Stryker on behalf of patients who were catastrophically injured as a result of their Accolade TMZF femoral stem and LFIT-V40 femoral head.

Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Design Flaws
Since this product was fast-tracked through the FDA by Stryker and became available to surgeons, there have been multiple reports of catastrophic failures where the cobalt and chromium heads of the patient’s hip implant corrode so badly that the head ultimately comes free from femoral stem, referred to by doctors as “spontaneous dissociation”. When this occurs it requires an invasive emergency surgery to remove both the femoral stem and and head (ball).
In addition to spontaneous dissociations, many patients have reported corrosion of the device which causing the release of metal ions (cobalt and chromium) into the patient’s body. These metal particles can trigger an immunological response called metallosis (metal poisoning), which can cause systemic damage to the patient’s entire body.
