You could be in danger of serious injury if you were one of the many patients who had a Zimmer Kinectiv hip replacement implant surgery, including the Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv Technology.

The Zimmer Kinectiv modular-neck technology allows for a surgeon to custom fit the hip implant to the patient’s anatomy. Recently, there have been problems with corrosion reported where the modular neck fits into the body of the femoral stem, causing harm to the patient.
Complications from the implant include:
- Inflammation including redness, tenderness, swelling, warmth
- Premature wearing of the articular surfaces causing loosening and joint dislocation
- Severe pain and inflammation caused by metal debris or metallosis, or metal poisoning
- Bone fractures especially in post-menopausal females
- Revision surgery after device failure can cause further damage
Zimmer is obligated to provide patients with reliable and safe medical products. Our defective medical device attorney works to hold Zimmer liable for the damage caused by its products to recover financial compensation for injured consumers.
