There have been over 1.45 million Zimmer NexGen knee replacements implanted since 1994. Patients who have had a Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement surgery have become more concerned with the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement failure rate. Many of those who had a Zimmer knee replacement surgery now feel like they are victims of Zimmer’s knee replacement’s early failure rate. The concern about the Zimmer Knee comes from:
Those who have received a Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement may be at risk for an early failure of their Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement. Surgeons from Rush University Medical Center urged consumers to avoid the Zimmer knee replacements and use a different brand. If you have a NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement, you should contact your surgeon to follow up and have tests on your knee to make sure it is working well and not loose.
The patients who reported problems in the first five years and had revision surgery reported a variety of symptoms. These symptoms included pain, swelling and problems walking. These symptoms are normal if you have just had a knee replacement. If the symptoms continue or come back, it is a sign that there may be a problem.
Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacements are supposed to last for 15 years. However, many people are injured by the Zimmer knee replacement because they need their knee replacement revised after only 3 years. Additionally, many people have reported that the Zimmer knee is loose after only 2 years of use.
