Zimmer manufactures various types of medical devices and is well known for their line of prosthetic knee implants. The safety of the NexGen CR-Flex devices has been questioned recently, sparking a Class 2 recall by the FDA.
The synthetic femoral implant is designed to cap the femur and connect it to the tibia, but many patients who received this device have complained of problems with their knees, sometimes causing severe pain and discomfort. To address these concerns, orthopedic surgeons from Rush University Medical Center conducted a study, finding a fail rate of 9.3% in the first two years. Zimmer blames the failure rate and injuries on the knee surgeons and chooses not to take responsibility for its defective product.
