Since 2012, more than 11,000 patients who have undergone total knee replacement surgeries around the world have received Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ tibial plate components. But in March 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled the devices after reports that the plates loosen within the knee.

If you underwent a total knee replacement between March 2012 and March 2015, and you're suffering from painful side effects or were required to have a corrective surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. Our experienced legal team is ready to review your surgical records and help you take action. Contact us today to get the help you deserve.

Do You Have a Defective Knee Replacement Component?

Your knee implant components may be defective if you had total knee replacement surgery between March 2012 – March 2015 and:

  • You're experiencing side effects from your knee implant.
  • You had—or may require—additional surgery to correct your defective Zimmer implant.

We understand most patients are not sure which components were used for their procedures. We're here to help. Our defective medical device lawyers can review your medical records to determine your rights to compensation.

Symptoms of Defective Zimmer Knee Components

Patients suffering from defective Zimmer Persona components may experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Knee pain
  • Difficulty walking or moving
  • Instability or difficulty balancing
  • Joint popping
  • Reduced range of motion

These side effects often require additional surgeries to correct, which can leave patients facing recovery periods that limit their ability to work and reduce their quality of life.

Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate Recalled by FDA

After receiving FDA approval in March 2012, the Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal tibial plate was used in thousands of total knee replacement surgeries throughout the U.S. and at several regional VA Medical Centers.

When Zimmer started to receive complaints of loosening and radiolucent lines—a type of X-ray evidence that indicates loosening—the company recalled the components.

Following Zimmer's voluntary recall, the FDA issued a Class 2 recall of the devices for all lots and sizes used in both left and right knees in March 2015. Medical device distributors, hospitals, and surgeons were notified of the recall by mail in February 2015.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
