Attune Knee Replacement

The FDA approved the Attune knee replacement device in 2010. Since then it has become one of the most popular knee replacement devices on the market. Commonly performed on athletes and the elderly, knee-replacement surgeries involve replacing a diseased knee joint with an artificial knee implant. A person can undergo a full or partial knee replacement. Total knee replacements can be expected to function well for up to 20 years. Common reasons for knee replacement surgery include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Other injuries

The Attune knee replacement was promoted to patients with the promise of stability and better range of motion. Despite these claims, the Food and Drug Administration has received numerous reports from patients of device failure – particularly the loosening of tibial parts – which may lead to revision surgery/surgeries.

Client Criteria:

We are interested in cases where patients require additional surgery to fix complications with their attune knee replacement device. Revisions may be required to fix a variety of issues with the device, including but not limited to:

  • Swelling
  • Joint pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Loosening or fracture of the device components
  • Fractures of the surrounding bone
  • Joint instability
  • Device dislocation
  • Misalignment of implant components
