Pryers secured £16,000 in compensation for Mrs S after negligent knee replacement surgery.

Mrs S suffered bilateral anteromedial osteoarthritis and required replacement surgery to both knees.

Before and during the surgery, Mrs S’s knees were measured and it was agreed that she would receive medium sized knee implants.

Post operatively however Mrs S was told that she had been left with a leg length discrepancy and it was recommended that she undergo a revision procedure to her left knee, which was performed the following day.

Following this second surgery Mrs S developed an infection in her left knee, which did not respond to treatment with intra venous antibiotics and eventually required a further surgery for excision of the wound.

Mrs S was told very little about why a second surgery was needed so soon after the first. Concerned about the care she received and that the Hospital had not been entirely open with her, Mrs S instructed Pryers to find out more about why the revision surgery was actually required.

Pryers investigations revealed that in fact Mrs S had received the wrong sized implant in her left knee. The operating surgeon had failed to notice his error during the surgery and Mrs S had never been told about it afterwards.

There was no excuse for having used the wrong sized implant. Pryers considered that this very basic error was indefensible. It was also disappointing that Mrs S only received an explanation for her injuries once solicitors were involved.

Pryers put together a strong case for medical negligence against the Hospital Trust and achieved early admissions of their liability, with £16,000 in compensation for Mrs S.
