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

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 certain additional eligible U.S. patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate Modular-Neck hip stem and/or ABG II Modular-Neck hip stem, known as a revision surgery, prior to September 9, 2020 and within 10 years of implantation. This follows 2014 and 2016 Settlement Programs in which over 95% of eligible patients enrolled. Under this new agreement, certain additional patients are now eligible to participate and may apply for compensation.

Enrollment in the 2020 Settlement Program will commence on September 30, 2020 and conclude on December 7, 2020. In order to enroll in the 2020 Settlement Program, patients must have registered or updated their registration information (if applicable) with the Claims Processor prior to enrollment.

At least 96% of those patients with unresolved claims who registered with the Claims Processor must enroll in the 2020 Settlement Program and qualify to participate for Stryker to be required to issue awards under the 2020 Settlement Program. If fewer than 96% of those persons qualify, Stryker can terminate the Program on or before January 14, 2021. Stryker does not expect any payments to be made until after January 14, 2021, but it is expected that payments will begin thereafter if the 2020 Settlement Program is not terminated.
