Egerton Law recently reported a recall by the medical device manufacturer Zimmer, Inc., of all lots and sizes of their Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate/Persona TM Tibia. The device was recalled after increased complaints of loosening after implantation, which sometimes requires revision surgery to correct.

The product has been on the market since late 2012. The recall applies to all lots and sizes. Over 11,000 of the Persona tibia devices are on the market, and Zimmer describes its product in detail on its website.
We have received several inquiries since our initial report from individuals who have suffered pain after knee replacement surgery. If you have continued problems after knee replacement surgery, and joint replacement surgery in general, read our Q&A for more information.
If you received the recalled Zimmer Persona tibial component, and required revision surgery to remove the device due to loosening, you may already be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Call Egerton Law to discuss your potential claim.
