Zimmer Kinectiv Hip Lawsuits
Attorneys at the firm of Kelley Bernheim Dolinsky, LLC are currently working with clients across the United States to file Zimmer Kinectiv hip lawsuits to hold Zimmer responsible for their injuries, pain, and suffering resulting from implantation with this potentially defective modular hip system. In recent years, modular hips such as the Zimmer M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv Modular Neck, the Stryker Rejuvenate, and the Stryker ABG II have been the sources of an unacceptably high number of FDA adverse event reports and recalls as patients suffer painful and debilitating injuries after implantation. Our experienced medical product liability lawyers are currently investigating multiple Zimmer Kinectiv hip lawsuits on behalf of these innocent victims and their families to help them recover full and just compensation for their considerable damages. If you believe a defective Zimmer Kinectiv hip caused your suffering, we encourage you to contact us to learn more about your potential right to substantial compensation.
Zimmer Kinectiv Hip Injuries and Complications
Like other modular hip systems, the Zimmer Kinectiv hip is offered with a variety of neck sizes, which gives surgeons the ability to customize the fit of the implant to suit the unique proportions of both male and female patients. Ideally, this custom-fitted modular hip should afford patients a greater range of motion, enhanced hip function and flexibility, and a longer lasting hip implant. Unfortunately, multiple patients have suffered serious and painful injuries when friction at the metal-on-metal neck joint of the Zimmer Kinectiv hip causes metal debris to slough off of the components and enter the blood stream. This can lead to a serious form of metal poisoning called metallosis and additional complications including:
- Necrosis (death) of bone and tissue
- Allergic reactions
- Organ failure
- Heart damage
- Permanent disability
Corrosion of metal-on-metal components in the Zimmer Kinectiv hip has also led to premature hip implant failure in many patients. While a hip replacement should last at least 15 years, numerous recipients of Zimmer Kinectiv modular hips have reported implant failure within only a few years of implantation. When a hip implant fails, patients must undergo complicated revision surgery. Not only is this a painful procedure requiring a lengthy recovery period, but the associated medical expenses can cause severe financial hardships for patients and their families. When innocent patients become victims of potentially dangerous medical devices like the Zimmer Kinectiv modular hip, our attorneys fight to defend their rights and ensure they recover full and just compensation for their physical, emotional, and financial damages.
