If you had hip or knee replacement surgery at the University of Miami between 2013 and February 2022, you may have been implanted with a recalled Exactech device.Orthopedic surgeons at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine implanted thousands of patients with hip and knee devices manufactured by Exactech, devices that have since been recalled. In 2022, Exactech notified surgeons that used these products that they had packaged the polyethylene hip liners and knee inserts in non-conforming vacuum bags, making the implants more prone to accelerated wear debris, bone loss, and/or component fatigue cracking/fracture, all leading to corrective revision surgery.
