Exactech Knee Implant Lawsuits — Defects In Packaging of Knee Implants

Exactech Knee Implant Recall: What You Need to Know

Exactech is a medical device company that manufactures hip, ankle and knee implants. In 2021, the company issued a recall of some of its ankle and knee implants due to a defect in the packaging. The defect caused the polyethylene liners in the implants to be exposed to too much oxygen, which can lead to early wear and degradation.

As of July 2023, over 370 lawsuits pending against Exactech related to the recall. The lawsuits allege Exactech knew about the knee implant defect but failed to warn patients and doctors. They also claim that the defective knee implants have caused patients to experience pain, stiffness, and other complications.

If you have an Exactech knee implant, it is important to talk to your doctor about the recall. Your doctor can assess your risk of complications and recommend whether you need to have your implant revised.

If you have experienced complications as a result of your Exactech knee implant, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. A lawsuit can help you recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
