A Letter from David Eisbrouch, Esq.
I talk to people with knee problems who call our Zimmer lawsuit phone number, and I can tell you this: Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee failure can cause significant stress and serious pain to patients who had high hopes for a full recovery. The patients who call us complain that they continue to endure pain that is as bad or even worse since receiving their high-flex implant. So long as the device remains popular, more people are likely to be exposed to the risk of knee failure and other related complications. These are the people who may need a Zimmer knee lawyer.
Some patients with Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex femoral component knee failure, or related problems due to NexGen MIS Tibial components and LPS-Flex femoral components, have come to believe that chronic pain is something they simply must live with after having such a device implanted. However, a recent report compiled by a leading orthopedic surgeon based on 108 patients suggested that patients’ chronic pain could be symptomatic of a problem with the device itself. Of those 108 patients, approximately 36% had experienced loosening of the device, and 8.3 % required knee revision surgery within just two years of having their first high-flex knee replacement implanted.
Knee replacement surgery is extremely difficult the first time. Knee revision surgery is even more difficult with greater risk of complications, added expenses, longer length of recovery, with more time away from family, friends, and work. Yet for many, revision surgery offers the only medical solution to their knee failure.
