Compensation for knee surgery

As the biggest joint in the human body, the knee is also one that is frequently operated on. Our knees make up a crucial part of our ability to move around, the joint itself gives us the flexibility to walk, run, crouch, kneel and perform a whole range of different tasks and as such any surgery which takes place on this area of the body is usually quite serious. 

Knee surgery is usually quite a complex process and can often require a great deal of rehabilitation, but if there are problems during the surgery process then you can often find that you are left with long-term injuries and as a result this could have a major impact on your life – you may consider a compensation claim.

What type of knee surgery might I have undertaken?

There are a number of different types of knee surgery available from general surgery right through to keyhole surgery depending on the extent of your injuries and the treatment that is required. If you have sustained a major injury then you may need full surgery to help mend your knee joint. If you have an injury in just one specific area of the knee then keyhole surgery might be all that you require just do deal specifically with that injury.

What potential problems could have occurred?

There are a number of potential problems which can occur during knee surgery, some of these include:

  • Errors made during the anaesthetic procedure
  • Mistakes made during surgery
  • Failure to accurately examine x-rays
  • Failure to operate on the appropriate area
  • The use of unhygienic equipment leading to infection.
