Zimmer Hip Lawsuits Filed

Are you aware that hip replacement therapy has been around for almost fifty years?  New surgical procedures and materials are being developed all the time.  However, not all surgical procedures and materials have been fully tested which may lead to implant complications.  Zimmer, one manufacturer of hip implant devices has had problems with some of their devices.  If you have experienced Zimmer Hip Complications, you should seek legal counsel to be informed of your legal rights and whether or not you qualify for a Zimmer Hip Lawsuit.

If you find you are having difficulty performing daily activities and experience severe hip pain, you may be considering hip replacement surgery.  This is particularly true if you are on medication and your medication is not enough.  When your diseased joint is replaced with an artificial joint, you should be pain free, increase your range of motion and be able to get back to the things you love to do.  Hip replacement surgery is a common procedure in the U.S. as well as knee, shoulder and elbow replacements.

The most common cause of hip pain is osteoarthritis (often genetic), rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease) and traumatic arthritis (accidental injury).  Regardless of how your hip pain came about, you’ll need to talk with your doctor to determine whether hip replacement is right for you.

Patients Experience Zimmer Hip Complications

Many patients who have had Zimmer implants have experienced Zimmer Hip Complications.  There have been numerous reports of pain and discomfort long after surgical procedures.  Zimmer Hip Complications involve the Durom Cup that is placed in the acetabulum of the hip.  These Durom Cups have an outer mesh material that should allow bone to grow into this part of the implant so the device becomes one with your bone.  Orthopedic surgeons have found that the Durom Cups are loose and can fall out.  The cups have not meshed together with the bone around them.  That means the cup and bone are not attached.  These Zimmer Hip Complications allow for the Durom Cup to be loose and may cause a prosthetic femur fracture because the Durom Cup has not bonded with the patient's hip bone.  If this happens, you will require a second surgery to replace your original implant.  If this has happened to you, you should contact a Zimmer Hip attorney to see if your case qualifies for a Zimmer Hip lawsuit 

If you have experienced Zimmer Hip Complications such as pain long after a Zimmer hip replacement surgery, loosening of the Durom Cup, required a second surgery, or any other hip implant problem you may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.  You should contact a Zimmer hip attorney to see if you qualify for a Zimmer Hip Lawsuit
