Stryker Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Settlement Update

A class action lawsuit was started in Canada about the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System, alleging it was defective, and that it failed prematurely.  The class action was certified by the Ontario Superior Court in Toronto on December 8, 2015 in Ritlop v. Stryker Canada et al. 

Please note that the lawsuit and the settlement described below do NOT relate to any other Stryker hip implant system, including the Rejuvenate Monoblock Hip System.

The Defendants, while not admitting liability, have agreed to a settlement of this lawsuit. The settlement applies to all persons who were implanted with a Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System in Canada who have not opted out of the class action and their estates and family members.

For a copy of the settlement agreement, which sets out how much compensation you might be entitled, you may contact class counsel.

A motion to approve the settlement agreement was heard by the Ontario Superior Court on January 6, 2020.  The settlement agreement was approved.  The order approving the settlement agreement can be found here:
