Joint replacement is a major operation. Surgeons replace damaged, injured or worn parts of a joint with artificial components. These manufactured parts may be determined to be defective and/or later recalled after an unusually high rate of failure is experienced by patients. This can result in the need for expensive and painful revisionary surgery.
Patients experiencing poor results associated with a joint replacement implant may suffer pain, reduced range of motion and/or loosening of the components of the device following surgery. Indications of a defective joint replacement could include an unstable, stiff, painful joint with limited range of movement.
If you suffer from pain, a loose feeling in the area of the artificial joint, limited range of motion or other complications following joint replacement implant surgery, please call me at (810) 603-3400 for a free consultation.
