As a growing portion of our population enters their senior years, certain medical ailments have become more common. Deteriorating hip and knee joints are prime examples of such ailments. A common technique for dealing with deteriorating joints is the use of replacement or prosthetic joints. These devices are implanted in the hip or knee and are supposed to offer decades of pain-free mobility.
Unfortunately, for many who have had hip or knee implants, this has not been the case. Many of these implants have actually caused pain rather than relieving it, as well as restricting mobility rather than enhancing it. When these implants fail, people need to undergo additional surgeries to correct the problem. These additional surgeries can have painful, lengthy and difficult recoveries that take time away from work and family.
DePuy, Stryker and Biomet hip and knee implants have been shown to have design and manufacturing defects that can leave people in worse condition than they were before receiving the implant. Brown Paindiris & Scott has the experience and utilizes the engineering and medical experts necessary to adequately support and zealously pursue these complex cases. In fact, many of these products are presently subject to recall.
