Knee Replacement Lawsuit Lawyer
The knee is one of the most common joints needing replacement. This is due to lost cartilage and damage from years of wear and tear. Hundreds of thousands of people undergo complete knee replacement surgery each year with the hope of gaining improved mobility and less pain. Most knee implants are projected to last for up to 20 years or longer, making the surgery worth the investment for individuals who want an active lifestyle. Unfortunately, many are disappointed when their knee implant turns out to be defective.
There are have been thousands of knee implants that have been recalled in recent years by major medical manufacturers. Even those that have not been recalled can have defects that lead to premature failure, infection or revision surgeries. For patients that receive one of these defective knee joints, they could face excruciating pain, infection, removal surgery or loss of mobility. The hope of regaining a higher quality of life with a knee replacement turns into a nightmare of medical problems and discomfort.
