A Zimmer Durom Cup Lawyer In Florida Can Protect Your Legal Rights
Designed for use by young, active patients who were expected to outlive conventional hip replacement, the Zimmer Durom cup implant was a one-piece metal socket device coated with a plasma designed to stimulate bone growth around and onto the surface of the implant. Unfortunately, the Durom cup hip replacement often worked completely opposite as advertised, failing within months of surgery and leaving victims in severe, debilitating pain.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A., our Zimmer Durom cup implant lawyers understand that the companies who manufacture medical devices sometimes put profits ahead of people. With most corporations standing to make huge profits off a new medical device, some rush their product to the market before adequately testing the safety or reliability of a product. When this is the case, you might have grounds for a lawsuit. Contact Florida hip replacement lawyer Jeffrey DeCarlo today. You may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
Zimmer hip implant had high failure rate
Manufactured by Zimmer Holdings Ltd., the Durom hip cup was first used in 2006. Due to a high failure rate requiring revision surgery and reports of debilitating pain after Zimmer Durom cup surgery, Zimmer Holdings suspended sales in July 2008. During its initial availability, approximately 12,000 patients received Durom hip cups as part of hip replacement surgery.
According to reports, a number of Zimmer hip replacements failed within months after surgery, requiring a second surgery to remove and replace the component. Surgeons determined that the socket was separating from the bone instead of fusing with the bone, as Zimmer advertised, leading to severe pain for patients. Other individuals may have yet to experience complications, but might still need a second surgery in the near future due to the device's instability.
