Update: Man Claims Attune Knee Left Him “Completely Disabled”
October 27, 2017 – A 66-year-old man from San Jose, CA., says he’s worse off after total knee replacement with the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee than when he was injured falling off a ladder. “Mike” has already undergone one knee revision surgery, and now doctors tell him he needs another one.
What’s the problem?
DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction designed the Attune knee implant over a 6 year period with the goal of improving clinical outcomes, reducing recovery time, and allowing knee replacement patients to return to their normal activities sooner than with earlier models. Unfortunately, the Attune Knee has been linked to debilitating complications, many of which may require revision surgery to remove or replace the implant.
Knee Replacement Complications
- Severe pain
- Bone damage
- Muscle damage
- Loss of / lack of bonding of the knee implant to the bone
- Tibial loosening
- Disassociation of the insert
- Change in position of the components
- Patello-Femoral Tracking-Lateral Release
- Knee replacement failure
- The need for revision surgery
Revision Surgery Information
Knee revision surgery is a long and painful ordeal, much more difficult than the initial surgery, particularly when bone loss has developed as a result of the allegedly defective implant. Surgeons who frequently perform revision surgeries often attribute knee replacement failure to the implant failing to adhere to the bone due to a lack of bonding between the bone and the implant.
Can I Participate in a Class Action?
Our lawyers have decided against filing a class action lawsuit over injuries alleged from the DePuy Attune Knee System. The problem is that in this type of litigation, class actions often force members into lowball settlement agreements which do not properly compensate victims for their injuries. If you’ve suffered complications after knee replacement surgery, talk to our attorneys about filing an individual claim.
