DePuy Synthes Attune® Knee System Revision Surgery

Are you facing or have you had DePuy Synthes Attune Knee System Revision Surgery? Knee replacement surgeries employing the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee System have a higher than normal rate of failure, requiring revision surgery to be performed.

Recovering from revision surgery due to a defective attune knee implant.

Total knee replacement surgery, or knee arthroplasty, is performed on people with severe knee damage that causes them pain, interfering with or preventing normal movement and activity, for which other treatments and medicine have not been effective. A knee replacement should last for years and have a significant positive impact on the recipient’s quality of life.

However, the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee implant has a higher than expected rate of failure that may require revision surgery to be performed.

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.

People who undergo knee replacement surgery expecting to improve their lives should not have to face decreased quality of life, more pain, and more surgery due to an issue with their implant.

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 help you get 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.
