Sue Zimmer for Defective Hip Replacement Device
The Zimmer Durom Cup is a newer type of artificial hip that was introduced in the U.S. in 2006. Over 12,000 people in the U.S. have had a Zimmer Durom Cup implanted during their hip replacement surgery. This Durom Cup was designed for use with Zimmer’s Metasul Metal-on-Metal Tribological Solution Large Diameter Heads (LDH).
Even though these Zimmer hip replacements are routinely implanted to relieve a patient from hip pain, it has been found in many cases that patients were experiencing continual pain or worse pain after the implant surgery, and/or forced to have an additional surgery to remove the defective hip replacement device. A recall of the Zimmer Durom Cup was never issued, however Zimmer did conclude that additional instruction and training should be provided to doctors before the devices are implanted.
Patients who have had a Zimmer hip replacement implanted and are suffering from significant complications, continual pain, or have had to have a revision surgery due to the defectiveness of the Durom cup total replacement system do have legal rights and may be able to sue Zimmer Holdings, Inc. for their injuries suffered. The lawsuit would seek damages for their pain and suffering as well any medical costs incurred and future surgeries if required due to the defective nature of the hip implant.
