    9 prominent orthopedic surgeons reported they have encountered an unusually high-rate of premature failures of the system.

    On September 13, 2017, Cunningham Bounds, LLC filed what is believed to be the first lawsuit in the country involving a premature failure of the DePuy Synthes’ Attune Knee System. The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Tuscaloosa County, Ala.

    DePuy Synthes markets the Attune Knee System as having “patented technologies” that improve range of motion and give patients “the confidence of a stable knee replacement.” However, in recent months, DePuy Synthes has filed dozens of reports with the Food and Drug Administration documenting premature failures of the Attune Knee System that have resulted in the destabilization of patients’ knee replacements and painful revision surgeries.
