Smith Nephew Defective Oxinium Cementless Knee Replacements recommend patients inquire about which knee replacement they will be receiving and do their own due diligence.

Last year, Smith & Nephew voluntarily recalled the cementless versions of its Oxinium Genesis II and Profix II implants. Smith & Nephew recalled these defective knee replacements implants because they did not bond properly. Many patients who received the Oxinium Genesis II and Profix II required revision surgery. Patients that received the Oxinium Genesis II and Profix II are also at higher risk of re-infection, further joint and muscular damage.

Knee replacement surgery is the most popular replacement surgery in the United States. Millions of people have undergone knee replacement surgery since it was introduced in its current form in the 1970s. There are approximately 200,000 to 300,000 knee replacement procedures performed every year in the United States.

People usually undergo knee replacement surgery when the pain has become too severe and no physical therapy or drug treatments are working. While a total knee replacement has a significantly higher success rate than in the past, complications can still arise. The success rate of the replacement operation is greatly influenced by the actual knee replacement that the patient receives.
