All types of surgery come with risks, and joint replacement is no different. One study identified 22 different risks associated with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) including “bleeding, wound complication, thromboembolic disease, neural deficit, vascular injury,medial collateral ligament injury, instability, malalignment, stiffness, deep joint infection, fracture, extensor mechanism disruption, patellofemoral dislocation, tibiofemoral dislocation, bearing surface wear, osteolysis, implant loosening, implant fracture/tibial insert dissociation, reoperation, revision, readmission, and death.”
