U.S. FDA Recalls Defective Medical Device Zimmer Knee Persona® Tibial Plate

The FDA has recalled the defective medical device known as the Zimmer knee replacement which is very likely to fail. The Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate is an individual part of three primary components of the knee replacement that has a tendency to pull away from the leg bone structure. People that have the Zimmer knee replacement installed are showing high rates of joint instability. The defective medical device is also showing radiolucent lines which is an indication of this premature failure.

In the FDA’s medical device recall it has been pointed out that knee replacement patients will need to endure another surgery to replace the recalled unit.

In the 3 years that the product has been on the market there has been about 10,500 Zimmer knee replacements completed. For a product that should last for 15 plus years, this is not good news for the defective medical device manufacturer.

It has been reported by patients that have the Zimmer Knee Replacement device, that they experience knee popping, mobility limitations and knee pain.

He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
