DePuy Synthes Attune® Knee Lawsuit

DePuy Synthes Attune knee replacement litigation

Are you considering filing a DePuy Synthes Attune Knee lawsuit? You may be considering it if you or someone you love had a total knee replacement that did not go as planned. Or perhaps you are having pain longer than would be expected after your surgery. Or maybe you feel unstable on your new knee. Or it is swollen beyond what is expected. Or maybe you had too much pain and instability and needed, or have been told that you need, revision surgery.

Thousands of patients have been implanted with the DePuy Synthes Attune® Knee during their total knee replacement surgery. Some people who have had knee replacements and received a DePuy Synthes Attune Knee have not had positive outcomes to their surgery. Their implants failed.

Total knee replacements are performed on people with severe knee damage that causes them pain, interfering with or preventing normal movement and activity, for which other treatments and medicines have not been effective.

A study back in 2017 noted that the FDA’s Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database had hundreds of reports of adverse events regarding the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee implant, many of which necessitated revision surgery. And there have been more in the intervening years.

Many DePuy Synthes Attune Knee implants fail due to the cement that is used to secure them loosening , which causes the implant to become unstable and results in pain and destabilization in the patients who received them.

If you have had a knee replacement and are experiencing pain and destabilization, or if you have been advised you need revision surgery, or if you have had revision surgery, contact your doctor to see if you received a DePuy Synthes Attune Knee or simply contact us. You may be entitled to compensation.

No one who receives surgery to improve their quality of life should have to endure a decrease in their quality of life due to manufacturer negligence. And when those unfortunate circumstances occur, we are here for you—to try to get you the compensation you deserve for pain and medical bills and lost work.

If you received a DePuy Synthes Attune total knee replacement implant with a fixed-bearing tibial component and had to have revision surgery, or if you have been advised that you need revision surgery but have not yet had it, contact us. The DePuy Synthes Attune posterior-stabilized fixed-bearing knee implant and the DePuy Synthes Attune cruciate-retaining fixed-bearing knee prosthetic are particularly prone to issues with loosening cement.
