Stryker Orthopaedics to Compensate Additional
Eligible U.S. Patients Who Had Surgery to Replace Their
Rejuvenate Modular-Neck and/or ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems

Please Click Here for Press Release


Stryker Orthopaedics and Court-appointed committees of attorneys representing Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem plaintiffs in New Jersey Multicounty and Federal Multidistrict litigations reached an agreement to compensate additional eligible U.S. patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem, known as a revision surgery, prior to December 19, 2016. This follows an initial 2014 Settlement Program that covered patients who had a revision surgery prior to November 3, 2014. In that initial program, over 95% of eligible patients enrolled. Under this new agreement, additional patients are now eligible to participate and may apply for compensation.

Enrollment in the 2016 Settlement Program will commence on January 17, 2017 and conclude on March 1, 2017. In order to enroll in the 2016 Settlement Program, patients must register or update their registration information (if applicable) with the Claims Processor by January 9, 2017 (see below for additional information regarding registration).

At least 95% of those patients with unresolved claims who registered with the Claims Processor must enroll in the 2016 Settlement Program and qualify to participate for Stryker to be required to issue awards under the 2016 Settlement Program. If fewer than 95% of those persons qualify, Stryker can terminate the Program on or before May 1, 2017. Stryker does not expect any award determinations to be made until after May 1, 2017, but it is expected that award determinations will begin thereafter if the 2016 Settlement Program is not terminated.

Important Update Regarding Patient Registration

Recently, Stryker’s counsel and the attorney’s representing patients implanted with an ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem or Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem reached an agreement to compensate additional eligible U.S. patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular-Neck hip stem and/or ABG II Modular Neck hip stem prior to December 19, 2016. In response, the federal MDL and New Jersey MCL Courts issued a court-ordered registration update for all patients who were implanted with an ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stem or Rejuvenate Modular Neck Hip Stem. The purpose of the registration is to have all such patients register and/or update some basic information to the extent it has changed. Registration and/or updating your registration is required in order to enroll in the 2016 Settlement Program.

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. 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 current registration deadline of January 9, 2017.
