Zimmer Knee Implant Issues: Loosening, Discomfort, Early Failure

In contrast to most artificial knee implants, the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex is attached to the thigh bone with out the use of cement. Regrettably, this could lead to the knee replacement method to loosen overtime or detach totally. A loose knee implant can cause discomfort, erode the bone, and severely restrict the patient’s every day activities.

Signs of a loose Zimmer knee implant may possibly include:
Knee stiffness
Knee pain
Limping
Decreased range of motion in the joint
Difficulty putting weight on the knee
