Knee replacement surgery is a very common procedure and can make a huge difference in the quality of life for someone suffering from chronic knee pain.  But recently many brands of knee implants are going bad years earlier than expected.  Some are even failing after only a few months.  It’s causing thousands of people across the U.S. to undergo painful revision surgeries and other medical procedures.  For a lot of patients, they end up worse-off than before their knee replacement surgery.

What’s Going Wrong with Knee Replacements?

Companies that make knee implants originally designed them for short-term use in elderly patients who had a shorter life expectancy.  Baby boomers and younger patients who got knee replacements expected their implants to last decades, but that’s not what’s happening.  In many cases, there is little research or testing on the long-term use of these knee replacement systems, and patients are suffering because of it.
