Stryker Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Settlement Update

A class action lawsuit was started in Canada regarding 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 do NOT relate to any other Stryker hip implant system, including the Rejuvenate Monoblock Hip System.

A settlement has been reached in this class action.  It 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 as well as to their estates and family members. The settlement was approved by the Court. 

For Claimants Revised on or before of February 6, 2020 and for Medically Precluded Claimants, the Claim deadline to submit a claim in the settlement was October 16, 2020 which has now passed.
