File Stryker OASYS Spine Plate Lawsuit

Several patients have already filed a lawsuit against Stryker for their defective OASYS Midline Occiput Spine Plate system. The lawsuit includes patients who received a defective spine plate between the dates of April 23, 2010 and February 12, 2013.

Additionally, nine plaintiffs named in the suit also participated in clinical trials of the device, before it was introduced to the public.
