The most trusted knee system in the world

Misleading Advertisements by Plaintiffs Attorneys

Plaintiff law firms are running television and internet advertisements about alleged recalls and isolated clinical data for Zimmer ® Nexgen ® knee products. Many of these ads are misleading, and some are deliberately wrong.

The FDA has never ordered a recall on any of our Zimmer NexGen knee replacement products. We believe these attorneys are causing undue concern about our products in the hope of making money, without regard for the truth, or your well-being.  Their presentation is often aggressive and convincing, even citing reports and surgeon experience, but none of it is in a fair, balanced, and truthful manner.

If you receive an unexpected call from an attorney about "Zimmer knees," or have questions based on these advertisements, please contact us so we can provide you with the facts.

About The Zimmer NexGen Knee System

The truth is the Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacement System is clinically proven and the most trusted knee replacement system in the world.   It is chosen by more surgeons for their patients, every day, than any other knee replacement system in the world.  Whether you already have had a knee replaced, or are considering knee replacement surgery, you should feel confident that joint replacement surgery is one of the most successful surgical interventions available.

In independent "joint replacement registries," that compare how knee systems perform in patients over time, Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacement products are among the best, and are usually the best performing of all major knee replacement systems. That's why Zimmer has become the most trusted and widely used implant system manufacturer around the world.

Zimmer is extremely proud of the performance of the NexGen Family of products. It is because of this performance over decades of use that more surgeons trust Zimmer for their patients than any other knee system.
