Knee Replacements

Johnson City Knee Replacement Lawyers

Helping Victims of Malpractice in East Tennessee

About 130,000 Americans each year receive a knee replacement or undergo knee arthroplasty. These procedures require a prosthesis (usually made of metal or plastic) to be implanted in the person and fused to their existing bones. A knee implant can last as long as 20 years, but sometimes there are problems with the implantation that require a second surgery to address a defect. If you or a loved one suffered due to a faulty knee device, the Johnson City knee replacement lawyers at Meade Law Group can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover.

Call (423) 464-7779 now or contact our firm online and schedule your free consultation. We collect no legal fees unless you are able to win a settlement.

Issues Surrounding a Knee Replacement

While the medical professionals involved in your knee replacement may have acted lawfully and with the right amount of care, the devices themselves may cause other problems. For example, the NexGen CR-Flex device by Zimmer Holding Inc. has been shown to exhibit high rates of failure. More than 36 percent of these implants have to be replaced within just 2 years due to their loosening inside the patient’s body. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you fight for the best possible outcome for your situation, helping you address the troubles you currently face.

Defective knee implants may lead to any of the following:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Revision knee surgery
  • Loss of mobility
  • Trouble with walking
  • Loosening of the replacement joint
