Over 700,000 total hip and knee replacement surgeries occur in the United States each year. An individual usually undergoes one of these surgeries to improve functionality and reduce pain associated with a specific health condition, fracture or general wear and tear from age and/or lifestyle. As our population ages, the number of orthopedic hip and knee replacement surgeries have increased. The number of knee and hip replacement recalls have increased as well.
The decision to have a knee or hip altered with an implant or completely replaced is a big one. After a patient discusses their options with an orthopedic surgeon, they would like to believe that the manufactured parts used are going to be the best option for their individual health needs. When their knee or hip replacement or implant does not function as it was expected to or it starts causing more harm than good, a person may have to undergo a second surgery to fix the initial problem.
A second surgery is usually more painful, has a longer healing time and is an increased financial burden. An experienced hip and knee replacement attorney will be able to evaluate whether or not a client is entitled to money damages as the result of a defective knee or hip implant / replacement.
Potential symptoms caused by a defective knee or hip part include:
