Zimmer knee replacement recall

As a Texas Zimmer NexGen knee replacement recall lawyer, I am aware of the problems with this medical device. Knee replacement (also known as joint arthroplasty) surgery is a pretty common medical procedure which has increased quite a bit in the last few years. In 2003, Zimmer, Inc. brought out the NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral component. This medical device allowed a greater range of motion for patients than any other previous knee replacement device. The NexGen CR models should last about fifteen years. Unfortunately though, Zimmer has had a significantly higher than expected number of problems and complaints because of loosening and various other serious failures of its "cementless" knee replacement device model.
