Over the previous several years, patients who have undergone knee replacement surgery with the Optetrak Knee Replacement System have reported thousands of adverse events to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Complications following the use of the Optetrak Knee Replacement System have included:
- Severe pain;
- Loss of mobility;
- Instability of the knee;
- Bone fractures or fragmentation; and
- Loosening or shifting of the implant.
These complications are often evidence that the Optetrak Knee Replacement System has prematurely failed and patients may be required to undergo additional corrective surgeries. These additional procedures are associated with higher risks of failure, slower recovery, and chronic pain.
If you have undergone knee replacement surgery that has failed prematurely, it may be the result of an implant that was defectively designed by the manufacturer. Your surgeon was likely unaware of the defect and would not be the target of any lawsuit.
