Increased Risk of Hip and Spinal Fracture

  • This study found a 4% increased risk of hip fracture during the 10 years following knee replacement.
  • Another study found an 11% increased risk for vertebral fractures.

Increased Risk of Heart Attack

  • Patients undergoing hip or knee replacement were 31 times more likely to have a heart attack.

Lawsuits have been filed against DePuy Synthes who markets the Attune Knee System. Multiple reports have been filed with the FDA documenting premature failure of the Attune Knee System. Symptoms include instability, swelling, reduced range of motion, and persistent pain. The premature failure is thought to be due to faulty glue that is intended to keep the tibial implant in place. The only solution is revision surgery to remove the implant and replace it. Ouch!

This surgery is associated with a number of serious complications and limitations. Rather than blindly following the counsel of orthopedic surgeons, be mindful of your options. Understand the causes of knee pain, and select a physician who can perform a comprehensive evaluation and musculoskeletal ultrasound. The Centeno-Schultz Clinic offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP), A2M, and bone marrow-derived stem cells and fat grafts as an alternative to knee surgery for osteoarthritis.
