Zimmer Hip Replacement Complaints and Lawsuits

Zimmer Hip Replacement Lawsuit Information

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received several complaints concerning the Zimmer hip replacement implant. Last year Zimmer temporarily suspended marketing of the medical device but attempted to place fault on the implanting surgeons' techniques and not their own product. Instead of voluntarily recalling the Zimmer hip implant device, Zimmer claimed they were revising surgical instructions and devising a surgical training program.

In the meantime, hundreds of patients could need additional hip replacement surgeries years earlier than the safer average. Several patients have already filed Zimmer Durom® cup lawsuits alleging defects of the implant. These lawsuits are expected to rise as more patients experience hip replacement failure.

In parts of Europe and Australia, there is a medical device registry where doctors can look at to determine the success or failure rate or problems associated with certain medical devices. For example, Zimmer still sells a knee implant device in the United States even though doctors in Australia stopped using because of its failure rate.

Are United States doctors and their trusting patients Zimmer's guinea pigs?

As you might imagine, pharmaceutical companies and medical device makers in the United States are in no hurry to start any such database registries here.
