Knee replacement devices have given millions of Americans a new lease on life with increased mobility and independence. These individuals rely on medical device manufacturers to adequately design and thoroughly test these products.
These medical devices, however, have hidden risks. In recent years, a wide range of complaints and claims were filed against medical device manufacturers on a range of knee replacement products.
Medical manufacturers have a responsibility to the patient to provide a product that has been thoroughly tested and is safe for widespread use. If there are risks, the company has a responsibility to make that risk known to the public and to the doctors who use these devices to treat patients.
