Depuy Knee Replacement
Did Your DePuy Attune Knee Replacement Implant Fail Prematurely? Across the United States, surgeons perform more than 600,000 knee replacements annually. Knee replacements provide relief, improves mobility, and increases the quality of life. Implants are projected to last more than 15 years. However, due to design flaws and manufacturing defects, the Depuy Attune Implant has had many premature failures forcing patients to undergo painful revisions.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE DEPUY KNEE REPLACEMENT?
The Depuy Knee Replacement used metal-on-metal components with a glue-like substance that held together the Attune Knee and a patient’s tibia bone. Research shows that the glue-like substance could not adhere to the attune knee implant.
