Loosening or dislocation of the hip joint is a very real risk for many patients implanted with a Zimmer® hip replacement, such as the Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv® Technology.
The Zimmer® M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv® Technology is a hip replacement with a system of modular metal components, originally designed to be more durable and adjustable than other hip devices. Today, however, the Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip implant is linked with a range of serious, sometimes even fatal health issues, including:
Metallosis (metal poisoning)
Loosening and dislocation of the hip joint
Many Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip patients experience such debilitating hip problems that they are forced to undergo costly, complicated revision surgery to replace the original artificial hip.
One of the most common complications associated with faulty hip implants is hip replacement dislocation. This dislocation occurs when the ball and cup system of the hip implant separate. This metal hip problem most often occurs suddenly and requires emergency medical attention. Some orthopedic specialists allege that the faulty design of some components of Zimmer® Kinectiv® implants are the cause of patients’ hip implant dislocations.
North Carolina residents implanted with a Zimmer® Kinectiv® hip replacement and suffering from hip implant dislocation should seek immediate medical attention and, shortly thereafter, experienced legal counsel.
