Side Effects of Zimmer® Hip Implants Use
Zimmer® hip implant construction reduces the risk of hip dislocation and preserves more of the hip joint’s natural cavity. The manufacturer warns that benefits must be weighed against the surgical skill required to successfully perform the procedure. Possible ill effects or negative patient outcomes include:
- Loosening of Implants
- Chronic Pain & Inflammation
- Inadequate Fixation Surface
- Implants Not Fully Seating
- Metallosis Poisoning
- Post Implant Surgeries
NOTE: Failure rates for Zimmer® hip implants have been estimated as high as 30 percent within a few years from the time of hip replacement surgery.
