ZIMMER KNEE REPLACEMENT RECALL LAWYERS IN ST. LOUIS
Missouri Zimmer Knee Recall Attorneys
Zimmer manufactures various types of medical devices including a line of prosthetic knee implants. Recently the safety of the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee implant has been called into question. This implant is a synthetic femoral implant designed to cap the femur (the thigh bone) and connect it to the tibia (the shin bone) via the implanted NexGen CR-Flex device. There have been recent complaints about the unusually high number of patients who received a Zimmer knee implant and have had problems with their knee.
Acting on their concerns, two prominent orthopaedic surgeons from Rush University Medical Center conducted a study and found that these Zimmer prosthetic knee implants have a failure rate of 9.3% within two years. Nearly 1 out of 10 people who received the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee had it fail within two years. The Zimmer knees were found to be failing at a rate five times higher than expected within two years. Zimmer on the other hand, stands behind the product, asserting that any difficulties patients experience are the result of poor surgical techniques.
Problems associated with a defective Zimmer knee may include:
- Difficulty walking
- Loosening of the implant
