Orlando Zimmer Knee Replacement Lawyers
Have You Needed Revision Surgery After a Knee Replacement?
The Zimmer knee replacement has been implanted in more than 3 million patients worldwide. These implants supposedly last for 10 to 15 years, but Zimmer models using the NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral component have experienced numerous problems. Many models with this component have forced patients to receive costly revision surgeries as early as 2 years after their initial replacement operation. If you have experienced complications after receiving one of these implants, reach out to The Trial Professionals P.A. to schedule a free consultation with our Florida Zimmer knee replacement attorneys. We have helped numerous individuals receive significant compensation for their injuries.
Zimmer’s Refusal to Listen
Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Richard Berger was a paid consultant of Zimmer that warned them of risks associated with the CR-Flex implant. Zimmer refused to listen, and after Dr. Burger released his findings to the public they claimed that it was his surgical techniques that led to the complications, not the device itself. Despite their accusations, thousands of patients who were not operated on by Dr. Berger have experienced the same issues he warned of in his report.
Some of the issues resulting from Zimmer knee replacements include:
- Nerve damage
- Corrosion of materials
- Loosening of knee components
- Joint pain
- Reduced mobility
One reason the CR-Flex implant is so dangerous is because it attaches to the bottom of the thighbone, rather than using cement to keep the knee in place. Many surgeons, including Dr. Berger, have pointed out the flaws in this design, but Zimmer continues to release devices that have been condemned by the medical community.
