Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Replacement Systems
Individuals across the country and even here in Tennessee may need the assistance that certain meditative items or devices can provide to help improve common tasks in everyday life. Specifically, hip replacement systems are very common for people who may have hip pain or trouble walking. These hip replacement systems are intended to improve stability and mobility. While these devices should be beneficial, unfortunately these products can be designed or produced poorly and they can fail meaning that the person relying on the product may experience problems and require additional surgical procedures to correct the problem. If you or someone you love has received one of the artificial hips during the time period of 2006 and July 2008, you should speak with your doctor and a Nashville defective device lawyer about the Zimmer Durom hips that were recalled to see if you may be eligible for any damages because of any injuries you may have suffered.What Information Should I Know About the Durom Cup and its Recall?
The country’s largest supplier of orthopedic products Zimmer Holdings began selling the Durom cup in the U.S. in 2006. An estimated 12,000 people have used the Durom cup since its inception. However, many people began to have issues with the Durom cup system. Many concerns were expressed to the FDA in 2006 shortly after the device began being used by medical professionals about the possibility of the device loosening and becoming dislocated thereby moving around within the implant site. Medical professionals using the product predicted that the device could require replacement. Zimmer however would not accept the concerns from medical professionals and said that American doctors did not have the necessary skills to insert the artificial hips properly.
On July 24, 2008, Zimmer Holdings took their hip implants off the market due to its extreme chance of failing. There have been many lawsuits filed all across the nation and in Tennessee due to problems. Even since 2008, medical professionals and surgeons expressed grievances about the device not operating correctly and stated that individuals needed additional surgeries to have them replaced.How can a Tennessee Lawyer help Me With my Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Replacement Case?
