I have read all of the posts and replies and nothing has been mentioned about
the cost involved when an implant fails. I am 60 and am facing my 5Th implant revision. All of the previous four have failed within the five year warranty period. It is interesting to note that the warranty inures to the hospital not the patient. These revisions are not cheap and they are very serious and complicated procedures. In my case I have a three piece AMS model unknown. Where I reside there are only five surgeons that perform implant surgeries and all five are out of network which substantially increases my out of pocket expenses. I have been given a ballpark figure of over $50,000.00 of which I have a $500.00 deductible and 30% of the total bill. I did not cause this failure.
What is the responsibility on the part of AMS? Or is there any? I Look forward to any comments and experiences.
