Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley attorneys are currently working with clients across the United States to hold Zimmer responsible for injuries, pain, and suffering resulting from implantation with a potentially defective modular hip system.
In recent years, modular hips such as the Zimmer M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv Modular Neck, the Stryker Rejuvenate, and the Stryker ABG II have been the sources of an unacceptably high number of FDA adverse event reports and recalls.
With the help of a proficient product liability law firm, you may be able to recover significant compensation for these hardships, and you should absolutely consider speaking with an attorney.
Zimmer Kinectiv Hip Injuries and Complications
Like other modular hip systems, the Zimmer Kinectiv hip is offered with a variety of neck sizes, which gives surgeons the ability to customize the fit of the implant to suit the unique proportions of both male and female patients. Unfortunately, multiple patients have suffered serious and painful injuries when friction at the metal-on-metal neck joint of the Zimmer Kinectiv hip causes metal debris to enter the blood stream. This can lead to a serious form of metal poisoning called metallosis and additional complications including:
Corrosion of metal-on-metal components in the Zimmer Kinectiv hip has also led to premature hip implant failure in many patients. While a hip replacement should last at least 15 years, numerous recipients of Zimmer Kinectiv modular hips have reported implant failure within only a few years of implantation. When a hip implant fails, patients must undergo complicated revision surgery. Not only is this a painful procedure requiring a lengthy recovery period, but the associated medical expenses can cause severe financial hardships for patients and their families.
