Stryker Modular Hip Settlement

About the Settlement Program

Important Update Regarding Patient Registration

To help with overall case management, the federal MDL and New Jersey MCL Courts recently issued Orders regarding patient registration with the Registration Processor for: (1) patients who have not previously registered; and (2) patients who have already registered.

The Orders require all patients who have not previously registered to register their claims. All patients who were implanted with an ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem or Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem are required to register: (1) whether or not the patient has filed a lawsuit; (2) whether or not the implant has been removed; and/or (3) whether or not the patient is represented by an attorney.

The Orders also require patients who have already registered and have not yet resolved their claims to update their registration information, including revision status, if their information has changed since initial registration. If the patient’s claim is resolved, there is no need to update his/her registration at this time.

The Orders are available on the Court Documents page of this website. All patients impacted by the Orders must have registered or updated their registration by the updated registration deadline of July 15, 2016.

Stryker Orthopaedics Settlement Program Reaches Milestone
95% of Registered Eligible U.S. Patients Enrolled in Program

Please Click Here for Press Release

The Stryker Modular Hip Settlement Program was designed to compensate eligible U.S. Patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular Neck and/or ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stems prior to November 3, 2014. It also compensates U.S. Patients that could not have the necessary surgery to replace the Rejuvenate Modular Neck and/or ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stems because it was determined prior to November 3, 2014 that they were too infirm to undergo the procedure. Details of the Settlement Program are set forth in the terms of the Master Settlement Agreement. You may view and download a copy of the Master Settlement Agreement on this website.

Stryker has informed the courts in the New Jersey Multicounty and Federal Multidistrict litigations that 95% of registered eligible patients have enrolled in the Settlement Program as set forth in the Master Settlement Agreement. Shortly, the Claims Processor will begin to notify claimants and their attorneys regarding compensation payments, the exact timing and amount of which will depend on factors and circumstances specific to each claim. It is expected that payments will begin this July and the majority of payments will be made by the Fall of 2015.
