Knee Replacement Recalls
Knee Replacement RecallsEvery year over a million people nationwide have knee or hip replacements. The makers of the replacement products promise solutions to limited mobility or pain. In recent years, however, some of the very devices that were supposed to improve the patient’s quality of life have resulted in serious injuries and even more restricted mobility. Some also experience financial burdens as a result of their injuries. Defective knee replacements can cause severe pain, infection, inflammation, and damage to the joints, muscles and bones. Revision surgery is often needed. Knee implant manufacturers are responsible for properly designing, testing, and monitoring their products. Sometimes, they simply don’t do enough. Consumers have begun to hold manufacturers responsible for their pain and suffering, with lawsuits being filed against Zimmer, Dupuy, and Stryker, to name a few. Some devices have been recalled, but in other instances, the manufacturers have insisted that there is nothing wrong with their products.
