Knee Implant Problems

Many of these devices have failed or been linked to serious injuries. In some cases you are in increased pain. In others you have restricted mobility. Often more than you experienced before the operation. Restricted mobility can affect your work and hobbies. If this happens then make a knee implant claim.

Knee implants use three components:

  • femoral,
  • tibial and
  • patella components.

Proper device design is crucial to the safety and effectiveness of these devices. If the devices are improperly designed or manufactured, you will experience problems.

In cases of successful knee replacement implants there will be natural wear and tear over the years. In problem cases the implants cause excessive and fast paced degradation.

You are at risk of excessive wear and tear, loosening of the joints and potentially a fracture. This could be for a number of reasons:

  • A gap is present between the components that was not detected during the assembly of the implant
  • In order to seat the insert with the base plate, excessive force is required
  • To complete the surgery a smaller stabiliser post from a smaller sized insert is used
