Boca Raton Knee Replacement Lawyer
Zimmer Inc. is the manufacturer of a variety of joint replacement systems, including shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. In 2003, Zimmer launched a new series of knee replacement systems under the name NexGen. Several of the NexGen systems and/or their components have become the focus of multiple lawsuits for their unusually high failure rate.
The Replacement Knee Did Not Bond Properly With Bone, Causing Pain, Instability And Additional Surgeries
Many of the issues focused on the CR-Flex Porous Femoral component. Rather than being installed with cement, it was designed to bond to the knee through regular bone growth.
Concerns of a design flaw began to grow when a significant number of the components didn’t bond as they were intended. The CR-Flex knee has been known to loosen in as little as two years, a remarkably short time when it was expected to last up to 15 years.
People who had the CR-Flex knee installed can face severe complications. In addition to the issues involved with the premature loosening of the component, patients often experience extreme pain, decreased stability and, in many cases, invasive and painful revision surgeries.
