Exactech Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuit


Exactech Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuit

If you or a loved one has received an Exactech hip replacement, you may be at risk for serious complications. In 2019, the company issued a recall for certain models of their hip replacement systems due to defects that could cause implant failure, dislocation, and other problems.

Potential Risks and Complications

While it may seem like a great solution to alleviate pain and improve mobility, undergoing a hip replacement surgery can come with potential risks and complications.

One of the most common complications is infection, which can occur during or after the surgery. To prevent this, your surgeon will likely prescribe antibiotics and take other precautions to reduce the risk of infection.

Another potential risk of hip replacement surgery is the possibility of blood clots forming in your legs. These clots can break loose and travel to your lungs, causing a potentially life-threatening condition called a pulmonary embolism. Your surgeon will likely take steps to prevent blood clots from forming, such as prescribing blood thinners and encouraging you to move around as soon as possible after the surgery.

There is also the risk of dislocation, where the new hip joint comes out of its socket. This is more likely to happen in the first few months after surgery, so it’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully during this time. You may need to avoid certain movements or positions, and you may need to use a special brace or cushion to keep your hip in place.
