North Carolina knee replacement lawyer
Knee replacement surgery is not an uncommon procedure in the United States, with about 130,000 knee implant surgeries being performed each year. Total knee replacement surgery may be necessary for people who are coping with arthritis or osteoarthritis.
In some cases, knee replacement surgery can harm a patient due to a defective knee implant. Zimmer Holding Inc.'s NexGen CR-Flex knee implant is one such brand that may be defective based on studies by two Chicago surgeons.
The studies found a high percentage of knee replacement patients were experiencing implant failure. One study concluded that 36 percent of implants were loose two years after the implant procedure was performed.
