Attune Knee Replacements
Knee replacement surgery is often a major life decision for patients suffering from joint pain or the inability to walk or move successfully. The Attune Knee Replacement System came out and gave patients a sense of hope: it promised innovative technologies that would give patients a new range of motion and a stable knee replacement.
That hope was quickly lost when doctors and surgeons began to see a high rate of surgical failure when using the Attune Knee Replacements. The reports began in 2015, and since then, there have been hundreds of reports and lawsuits saying that the Attune product failed prematurely, resulting in painful revision surgeries or irreplaceable damage for the patients.
How Do I Know if My Attune Knee Replacement Failed?
It is often obvious to your surgeon that the knee replacement is not acting as it should, but patients will also see many complications as well. These include:
- Increased pain
- Reduced mobility
- Infection or inflammation
- Muscle damage or bone loss
What Can I Do?
If you received an Attune Knee Replacement and experienced complications and premature failure, it’s important to know your rights. If you required more surgery or will now experience lifelong damage, you should be compensated for your pain and suffering.
