NOVEMBER 2015 – Did you Suffer an Infection After Your Knee Replacement Surgery? Does this sound like your experience with an infection after knee replacement surgery?

  • When released to rehab, I almost went comatose because of a fever. I was taken to the ER, where they found that I had sepsis. I was hospitalized because of it. 
  • After two knee replacements, I went into a nursing home. I stayed in bed for 6 weeks, but still got an infection. They cultured it, and found that it was two different infections. I have been hospitalized three times because of recurring infections.
  • I was in rehab 4 days after my knee replacement surgery. On day 5, I woke up, and my knee was bleeding and full of pus. I was hospitalized due to infection.
  • After my knee infection, I had a staph infection, and was hospitalized again.
Reports show that serious infections developed in knee replacement patients when the surgical facility used a product known as the Bair Hugger.  The Bair Hugger is a forced air warming blanket used to maintain normal body temperature during surgical procedures.  If you or a loved one has developed a serious infection after knee or hip replacement surgery, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering incurred as a result of the use of the Bair Hugger.  With an army of over 20 lawyers and a staff of 50 support personnel, our experienced defective medical device lawyers are available to provide a free consultation to review your case.  See our website at  or call us at +1.866.504.4558 to discuss your legal options today.
