I would like to know why doctors do not tell you that your second hip replacement is due to a recall of the hip parts. I have had hip surgery on Oct. 2006 and replaced on Nov2007. Still can't walk due to  the problems these recalls have caused. Now I am trying to decide if I want to have it done again.
Is Stryker the only hip company?

Hi,
I am sorry that you are feeling that doctor's hide things, which are supposed to be told. I think we always tackle bodily issue or disease state first, and let the patient know about other issues later on as the patients would get depressed and we won't have good response from disease state.
The immunity would go down further.
Other than Stryker there are companies like Zimmer and DePuy dealing in hip replacement.
Good luck
Bye
