Kassel McVey won a jury verdict earlier this month on behalf of a man who underwent total knee replacement surgery and ended up with a deep bone infection known as osteomyelitis.

The patient alleged that the orthopaedic surgeon who performed the procedure violated the medical standard of care by placing the implant incision too close to a previous incision scar on the patient’s knee.  The resulting infection required that the knee implant be removed twice and placed the patient at a life-time risk of recurrence of the infection and likely amputation of his leg.
