Knee replacement failure symptoms include:
• Pain and swelling around the knee
• Instability and uncontrolled knee movements
• Failure to bond/adhere
• Revision surgery
In addition to the above symptoms, other problems that may be associated with knee replacement failure symptoms include bone loss, mobility issues, stiffness, swelling, soreness, and severe tissue damage. These things may not be repairable through revision surgery and could result in a lifetime of discomfort and limited mobility.
For such a common procedure, it’s unfortunate that we are seeing a high rate of failure in knee replacement systems, including the DePuy Attune Knee Replacement System. This particular knee replacement is failing due to the tibial component not adhering to the cement, causing severe pain and instability. If you are experiencing any of these knee replacement failure symptoms, call us at 612-436-5026 for a free consultation. Our experienced medical device lawyers may be able to help you.
DePuy is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. GoldenbergLaw has litigated against Johnson & Johnson and DePuy in other litigations, including the Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder/Ovarian Cancer litigation and the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant litigation. We want to hold this company accountable for the harm they may have caused you.
