Zimmer Durom Hip Recall Lawsuit

In July 2008, Zimmer Holdings Inc., the manufacturer of the Zimmer Durom cup hip replacement device, suspended the product for what the FDA later called its “use/surgical technique instructions are inadequate”. Essentially, the Zimmer Durom cup hip replacement was recalled because the acetabular cup has shown signs of loosening and dislodging in a number of Zimmer hip clients. The Zimmer hip was designed so that the acetabular cup would allow for bony ingrowth which in turn would keep the cup component in place.
If you’ve had a Zimmer Durom hip replacement and have experienced pain, you should consult your surgeon. Some of the failed Zimmer hips have required revision surgeries in order for the loose hip component to be repaired or removed altogether.
