If you received an Optetrak knee implant manufactured by Exactech – particularly in the year 2011 or 2012 – and the knee implant failed, you may be owed compensation. Various reports to the US Food and Drug Administration indicate these devices may be prone to early failure.
Have You Been Told You Need a Revision Surgery?
Models of Optetrak manufactured in 2011 and 2012 had a different type of tibial tray than other models. This tibial tray may be causing problems and leading to early knee implant failure. When that happens, you may be told you need a revision surgery.
Have you undergone or scheduled a revision surgery? If so, you may have a claim. The only way to know for sure is to contact a lawyer reviewing these types of claims. Even if you have not discussed revision surgery, it is possible you are owed compensation if your knee implant is failing due to this defect. Call us now to find out.
