Zimmer Hip Recall

RX Drug Liability Information

Zimmer Hip Implant – Durom Cup

Zimmer Holdings, Inc., initiated a hip implant recall in July 2008 after it was determined that the surgical parts did not work properly, forcing many patients to undergo painful and costly additional surgeries to correct the defect.

The Durom Cup, a Zimmer hip replacement implant, is made of cobalt-chromium alloy from a single piece of material. More than 13,000 people nationwide have received the Zimmer hip implant, and experts estimate that between 5% and 8% of these cups are defective, and therefore subject to this hip implant recall.

The defective products included in this hip recall fail to bond properly with the existing bone structure, and begin to loosen, separate, and painfully grind against the bone as they move. The years in question for Zimmer hip implants with possible problems are from 2006 to 2008.

Zimmer Hip Failure Symptoms

Zimmer hip implant failure symptoms include:

  • Hip pain
  • Loose hip joints
  • Funny noises
  • Instability
  • Inflammation
  • Other problems in the location of the artificial hip joint

How Do I Find Out If I Have a Zimmer Hip?

The Zimmer Durom Cup has been available internationally since 2003, and sold in the United States since 2006. If your hip surgery was performed prior to 2003, you are not affected by this hip recall.

If your hip surgery occurred after 2003, you may need to speak with your orthopedic surgeon or the hospital where you had your surgery find out whether you are affected by the Zimmer hip recall. Note that it may take time for the information about your surgery to be found.

For privacy reasons, your orthopedic surgeon or the hospital where your surgery took place may ask you to request this information in person.
