Zimmer, Inc.

Product Compatibility

Products manufactured by Zimmer were not originally designed to be compatible with products from other manufacturers. There was no assurance that products from different companies may be safely used in combination with each other.

This website has been developed to address the potential compatibility of product families across Zimmer companies. In order to establish compatibility, testing and/or engineering evaluations are being completed to assure our global customers that paired products can safely be used in combination.

To ensure patient safety, refer to the package insert or other accompanying product information that is provided with the implant.

Please select the product type below to view product compatibility information for that area:
