Failed knee replacement surgery can cause severe pain, serious injuries, physical impairment, mental anguish, and the need for additional knee replacement surgery. Failed knee replacement surgery can be caused by medical negligence or defective knee implants. Regardless, as to whether the failed knee replacement surgery lawsuit is caused by a defective implant, and/or medical negligence, a failed knee replacement lawsuit can take significant resources to investigate and litigate. When investigating these potential failed knee replacement surgery lawsuits, it is important to know what implant has been used as well as to obtain medical records of the surgery.

Failed knee replacement surgery lawyer, Jason S. Coomer handles failed replacement surgery lawsuits including defective product lawsuits and medical negligence lawsuits that can cause catastrophic injuries, physical impairment, disability and the need for additional knee replacement surgery. These failed knee replacement surgery lawsuits can be caused by defective knee implants or medical negligence, and can take significant resources to investigate and file a lawsuit. When investigating these potential failed back surgery lawsuits it is important to know what implant had been used as well as to obtain medical records of the surgery.
Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve the pain and disability. During knee replacement, a surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage from the patient's thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers. Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement.
A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thigh bone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem.
Unfortunately, defective materials including defective component parts of knee joint implants can cause significant pain, disability, and the need for revision surgery. Further, medical mistakes during the implantation surgery can also cause significant pain, disability, and the need for revision surgery. These medical mistakes often happen when doctors and nurses get too busy, are understaffed, under the influence of drugs, or are just not paying attention.
As medical budgets go down and healing people becomes more of a "for profit" business, cost cutting measures are causing more medical mistakes. Overworked surgeons, doctors, residents, and nurses are much more likely to make mistakes than well rested health care professionals.
Medical mistakes also happen more often when no one is watching. It is extremely important when you are in the hospital to have someone that is with you and watching out for your well being. This is especially true if you have an allergy to certain types of medicines. Communication with your health care professionals is also important and can greatly limit medical mistakes.
Communication Helps Prevent Many Medical Mistakes
It is always a good idea to have someone that you trust look out for you when you are in the hospital. This person can communicate important information regarding your condition and watch out for you when you are in the hospital. It is important to make sure that you or your medical advocate communicate with health care professionals to limit the mistakes that are made.
However, even with proper communication medical mistakes are made. If a mistake is made, it is important to report the mistake and if the mistake causes serious injury or death it is important to investigate a potential medical malpractice lawsuit. This is because medical mistakes that no one knows about will not be noticed and will not result in future better medical care. Medical mistakes that are reported will help other patients and are an essential part of the feedback needed to improve our health care delivery system.
