Smith and Nephew Visionaire System Problem

I just found out after that the Visionaire System to implant knees has flaws. My fibula side implant is 15 - 20 degrees shift from center. The directions given to the Doctors was incorrect.

The specialist said it is made for some degree of shifting and that 5 -8 degrees would be ok with little pain but mine is double and very painful.
I will need a replacement of the upper part.

Hope this helps someone else seeking answers to severe knee pain after TKR. He said that this is popping up all over the US and expects a recall of some sort soon.
