Rottenstein Law Group Encouraging Friends and Relatives of Zimmer Knee Replacement Recipients to Advise Them to Speak to Doctors, Lawyers
(New York, NY, April 11, 2011) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims associated with the failures of defective knee replacement devices manufactured and sold by Zimmer Holdings, Inc., is endeavouring to inform possible victims of the dangers of the Zimmer NexGen system.
In 2003, the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex implant was first introduced as a new solution to give individuals with knee problems a broader range of motion than was previously possible. It has since been used in over 150,000 surgeries and makes Zimmer millions of dollars in yearly revenue. A recent study uncovered data that is causing people to second guess the effectiveness of the NexGen CR-Flex model. The surgeons who conducted the study are advocating for the product’s removal from the market.
It is the “cementless” version of the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex that is leading to difficulties in patients. Most knee replacement systems are attached to the thigh bone with cement, but the “cementless” NexGen system fuses to the bone through natural “ingrowth.” While this is an excellent medical advancement in theory, the product in practice has a tendency to loosen in recipients, causing them significant pain and difficulty walking. While there is currently no word from Zimmer or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regarding a possible recall of these devices, victims have begun investigating their legal options, including the possibility of bringing Zimmer replacement knee lawsuits.
Unfortunately, recipients of artificial joint replacements often are not aware of the manufacturer and/or model of the specific device they’ve received. This lack of information can impede a victim’s ability to take the required actions, both medical and legal, in a timely fashion. The Rottenstein Law Group is encouraging anyone with a friend or relative who has received a knee replacement device to recommend to that person that he or she consult a physician immediately, and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer. Rottenstein’s lawyers have a total of more than 25 years of experience fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered harm due to the negligence of powerful corporations like Zimmer.

The site contains features that easily allow users to spread the word about Zimmer NexGen replacement knee failures.
