Botched Knee Replacements Caused by Surgical Errors in Minnesota


Victims of Failed Knee Replacements


Any joint replacement surgery is a very serious surgery.  These are complicated and involved surgeries which cause a lot of pain and suffering to a person’s body—even when performed properly.  However, many of these joint surgeries are not performed properly.  Knee replacements are one of the most common joint surgeries to be performed improperly due to surgical medical malpractice.  This causes a patient additional pain and suffering, including additional and unnecessary surgeries to repair the mistakes made.

Know When to Call a Lawyer: Signs of a Botched Knee Replacement


There are several signs of a botched knee replacement which are indicative of medical malpractice.  This type of surgical error can cause permanent disability and must be reviewed by a lawyer to see if a victim is entitled to compensation.  Some common signs of a failed knee replacement which may give rise to a surgical error and medical malpractice claim include the following:


  • One leg is shorter than the other;
  • The knee will not bend at all or has a restricted range of motion less than the healthy knee;
  • Pain in the opposite hip due to overcompensation;
  • The knee feels loose or shaky;
  • A serious infection develops after the surgery, especially deep inside the joint;
  • Any fracture, especially to the femur, fibula, tibia, or hip;
  • Instability of the knee, including the feeling that the knee is giving way to one side or the other;
  • Stiffness in the knee;
  • Pain and suffering in the foot, toes, lower leg;
  • Blood clots after the surgery;
