Zimmer Nexgen Knee Lawsuit
On February 15, 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released several public health service bulletins concerning hip implant systems which were metal-on-metal component systems. The purpose of these public releases is to alert the public to the severe FDA concerns of side effects from metal-on-metal hip systems. The side effects include joint dislocation, swelling, numbness, medical particles causing a reaction around the joint leading to the deterioration of tissue, loosening of the implant, failure of the implant and revision surgery.
This public report comes approximately six months after DePuy Orthopedics, the orthopedic division of Johnson & Johnson, issued its worldwide recall on the ASR DePuy Hip Replacement devices.
Anyone who has received a hip replacement in the United States
after July 2003 may have received a DePuy ASR device. We invite you to read
