Did you have a knee replacement? Do you need another knee replacement sooner than expected?

 Lawsuit Information

Knee replacement surgery should not be taken lightly as knee surgery is considered major surgery and will affect your future mobility.

It's between you and your doctor but you probably don't need knee replacement surgery if—knee pain doesn't limit normal activities and knee pain feels better with some treatments. Taking small steps to remedy knee pain is always a better option than major knee surgery.

On the other hand, here are some reasons why a knee replacement could be warranted:

  • Knee pain confines you from climbing stairs or getting up from a chair.
  • Knee pain restricts you from the activities you like such as walking the dog or going shopping.
  • Knee pain is so great that you can't sleep or can't fall sleep.

Treatments and remedies over a period of time have not helped with the pain.

Knee surgery is not one size fits all or even one gender fits all. A knee system implant fitted for a 200-pound man would not be suitable for a 135-pound woman. Many factors must be considered including your age, history of prior surgeries, bone mass density, and overall health.

Have you or your spouse or parent suffered knee replacement surgery injury? Unfortunately, it's not uncommon that failing medical device knee implants are causing thousands of people to redo their knee replacements in two or three years instead of 15 or 20 years.

See prospective studies comparing the results of the Zimmer MIS Tibial Component using conventional and minimally invasive exposures as well as comparing fixation with different types of bone cement as described in Early Aseptic Loosening With a Precoated Low-Profile Tibial Component A Case Series.
