The Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement system was initially touted as a long-lasting treatment that would provide patients with a broader range of motion than previous knee implants. However, the knee implants have demonstrated a high early failure rate that can cause extreme pain and require revision surgery.
Additional lawsuits against Zimmer related to faulty NexGen knee implants are pending. Plaintiffs are alleging that Zimmer manufactured and sold knee implants with design flaws, and that the company failed to warn consumers about the risks associated with NexGen CR-Flex knee replacement systems.
