Exactech Knee Replacement Recall Information
An Exactech Optetrak recall was issued for more than 146,000 knee implants used since 2004. If an Exactech implant system was used in your knee replacement surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.
On February 7, 2022, medical device manufacturer Exactech sent a knee replacement recall notice to orthopedic surgeons throughout the United States.

Exactech Knee Replacement Lawsuit
If you received a recalled Exactech knee replacement in 2004 or later, you may have a legal claim for compensation. The experienced attorneys at Walton Telken may be able to help.
What is the problem with Exactech knee inserts? Defective polyethylene inserts used with Exactech knee replacements have been found to degrade prematurely, causing failure rates 3 to 7 times higher than other total knee replacement systems and resulting in patients needing costly knee revision surgery.
Significant Exactech knee recall settlements may now be available for individuals who received an:
- Exactech Optetrak knee replacement since 2004
- Exactech Optetrak Logic knee implant since 2009
- Exactech Truliant knee replacement since 2017
If you or a loved one had to get revision surgery after a knee or ankle replacement with an Exactech implant, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Find out if you qualify now.
Even if you have not yet had revision surgery, you may be entitled to compensation if you’ve experienced symptoms of implant failure.
Signs of Knee Replacement Failure
The following symptoms have been reported by other patients who have suffered Exactech knee replacement failure:
- New or worsening knee pain;
- Knee swelling;
- Knee grinding;
- Knee clicking;
- Knee stiffness;
- Pain while walking; and/or
- Knee instability.
If you have experienced any of these symptoms, the experienced attorneys at Walton Telken recommend that you immediately report the issue to your surgeon, who may obtain knee x-rays to evaluate your implant. Should your surgeon find evidence of knee replacement failure, he or she may recommend knee revision surgery or surgery to exchange the defective polyethylene insert.
Even if you have not experienced symptoms, Exactech knee recall settlements may still be available.
