Knee Replacement Compensation

Knee replacements are one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed in the United States and Canada each year. Over a half million knee replacement operations are performed annually in the United States and Canada and this seems to be increasing on a yearly basis. Knee replacement devices are intended to provide up to 15 years or more of pain-free stability and mobility for recipients.

Braun Aesculap (Vega, Columbus, EnduRo, univation X); Stryker Triathlon with ShapeMatch; Smith & Nephew; Arthrex IBalance TKA; Exactech Optetrak; and Zimmer Persona with Trabecular Metal; may be linked to a number of unwanted and painful side effects and complications or recipients may require revisions far earlier than they should.
