Since 2003, more than 150,000 Zimmer NexGen Flex-Knee implants have been sold. Several different components used as part of the Zimmer NexGen Knee replacement system have been associated with increased risk of complications, including pain, swelling, loosening of component parts, and the need for follow-up/revision surgery.

Several prominent surgeons want a Zimmer NexGen knee replacement recall to be issued. At a March 2010 conference of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, two knee surgeons presented data suggesting the Zimmer NexGen Flex-Knee failure rate could be as high as 9 percent, and that the actual number of complications that require revision surgery could be even higher. The lead author of the study, Dr. Richard Berger, described the failure rate of the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral Component as “unacceptably high.”

Beasley Allen would like to review any cases involving individuals who have had a Zimmer NexGen knee device implanted, or individuals unsure of the type of knee device implanted if that individual has had revision surgery.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
