Our Michigan defective device lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent patients who have undergone knee replacement surgery and received artificial components manufactured by Zimmer Holdings. Many of these defective devices have caused serious harm to individuals who received the implants. Some of these components have been recalled, and lawsuits are being filed against Zimmer for failure to produce and sell a safe medical product.
Most recently, Zimmer has been under fire for their Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate knee component. Complaints from patients who received this implant have been increasing. In March 2015, this knee system was issued a Class II recall by the United States Food and Drug Administration. This is not the first knee replacement system manufactured by Zimmer that has been controversial. Between September and December 2010, Zimmer had four knee products from their NexGen product line recalled. In January 2012, the FDA recalled an additional Zimmer product, the Natural-Knee II Durasul All-Poly Patella.
Here is a list of Zimmer knee products that have been known to cause complications. If you or someone you care about has suffered injuries from any of these products, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
- NexGen Tibial Trays & LPS-Flex Gender Femoral Component
- MIS Modular Tibial Plates and Keels
- Natural-Knee II Durasul All-Poly Patella
- Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate
