There have been numerous reports of surgery patients suffering life-threatening infections after undergoing hip or knee procedures. Research shows that most of these infections come about during knee or hip replacement surgery. In severe cases, the infections are forcing patients to undergo additional operations to rectify the problem. This leads to additional medical costs.
In more severe cases where the infections cannot be treated, patients are forced to have hip or knee implants. Common symptoms from a knee or hip replacement operation include:
• Fever and Chills
• Wound drainage
Approximately 50% of the hip and knee infections are staph infections, while 8% are staphylococcus aureus. The staphylococcus aureus is a serious infection which is also very difficult to treat. In some cases, especially where the staphylococcus aureus is not treatable, the knee or hip patient may have to be amputated. At Clearinjury, we are currently seeking patients who were attacked by a hip or knee staph infection. We want those patients whose surgery was performed no later than the previous 6 years.
