Many patients implanted with a Zimmer® hip replacement, such as the Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv® Technology, suffer from debilitating hip pain as a result of the implanted hip device.

Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv® Technology

The Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv® Technology is a hip replacement system featuring a variety of modular metal components, designed to be more durable and adjustable than other hip devices. Today, however, the Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip implant is linked to a range of serious health issues, including:

  • Severe pain
  • Bone fractures
  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)
  • Loosening and dislocation of the hip joint

Many Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip patients experience such severe hip problems that they are forced to undergo costly, complicated revision surgery to replace the original artificial hip.

Severe Pain and the Zimmer® Kinectiv® Hip Implant

Individuals implanted with a Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip device, and exhibiting symptoms such as severe pain, should seek prompt medical attention and expert legal counsel as soon as they are able.

Note: Reports of severe pain and other serious side effects have also been reported in patients implanted with the Zimmer® Durom Acetabular Component (also known as the Zimmer® Durom Cup). The wide range of health complications associated with this product led Zimmer, Inc. to issue a voluntary recall of the Durom Cup component. A recall has not yet been issued for the Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip device and related device components.
