Knee surgery expert witnesses may be called upon for a case to evaluate an injury and offer an expert opinion on the required type of care needed by each patient. Knee surgery expert consulting may be required for cases involving sports injuries, sports medicine, orthopedic treatment, orthopedic surgery, arthroscopic surgery, reconstructive surgery, and other related practices. Like any type of medical treatment, however, litigation may result from incidents of medical malpractice, failing to provide a patient with accurate information regarding his or her surgery and treatment, prescribing the wrong medication, unforeseen side effects, or issues with healthcare insurance, among other potential problems.
Knee surgery expert witnesses are often experienced as certified and licensed orthopedic surgeons, as the knees are part of one’s musculoskeletal system. Knee surgery may be required for knee replacement resulting from different types of injuries, including those having taken place in a sports or workplace environment. Like other injuries requiring orthopedic treatment, knee surgery patients may require physical medicine and rehabilitation, depending on the specific type of injury in question.
In addition to knee surgery, expert witnesses in this area are also often experienced with elbow surgery, hip surgery, shoulder surgery, and wrist surgery, as they are all part of the musculoskeletal system.
