Knee injuries can cause serious debilitation in patients. Many patients choose to have a knee replacement in order to rid themselves of the pain and to lead fuller, more active lives. The Zimmer Persona is a knee replacement system that was marketed for patients who are looking for a versatile solution to knee injuries.
However, the Zimmer Persona knee replacement was found to contain some design flaws. The company promised that the knee replacements would address the needs of numerous patients who were suffering from various conditions and injuries. Instead, the knees were found to have a number of issues. They contained defective screws, which resulted in the knees loosening or failing, necessitating an additional surgery to repair. Patients reported suffering injuries due to the devices. Fluids could build up between the components of the knee and the bone of the joint. The implants were also found to contain debris, which could become lodged in the joints and cause damage.
Thousands of patients with Zimmer Persona knees have filed lawsuits against the company. Many are alleging that they were forced to have additional surgeries and that they have had a great deal of pain and the loss of mobility. If you have received a Zimmer Persona knee replacement which failed or resulted in further injury to your knee, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the company.
