Knee Implant Infection – Five Signs to Watch for

Infections are caused by bacteria allowed to enter the body through a wound. During knee replacement surgery, bacteria is kept away from incisions through strict adherence to surgical protocol. However, Bair Hugger warming blankets used during knee replacement procedures have been linked to increased risks for bacterial infection. If you have developed a post-surgical knee infection, call (800) 504-0281 to schedule a free consultation with one of the defective medical device lawyers at GoldenbergLaw.

Sings that your knee may be infected include:

  1. Stiffening or pain around the new implant
  2. Swelling in the knee joint
  3. Warmth or redness around the incision
  4. Drainage from the incision
  5. Fevers, chills, and night sweats

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms following the placement of your knee implant, our defective device attorneys can investigate your case to establish liability and help you secure the compensation due to you.

Infections stemming from surgical procedures could also be a sign of medical malpractice, but in cases involving defective medical devices such as the Bair Hugger warming blankets, multiple parties may be liable for your damages. At GoldenbergLaw, our attorneys have decades of experience litigating these complex cases with a proven record of success in holding negligent hospitals, doctors, and device manufacturers accountable for damages they cause. Please contact us online or call (800) 504-0281 today to schedule your free consultation to discuss your case and learn more about your rights.
