Defective Persona® Knee Replacements
In March 2015, Zimmer Biomet recalled over 11,000 Persona® Tibial artificial knee devices after the FDA issued a warning that the implants could prematurely loosen and cause serious complications. Surgeons have been warned to discontinue use of this device, which was sold to hospitals around the world between November 2012 and January 2015.
Complications associated with the Persona artificial knee device include:
- Osteolysis (bone damage)
- Severe and chronic pain
- Tissue damage
- Loss of range of motion and mobility
If you or a loved one received one of these devices and experienced debilitating complications, including extreme pain and early device failure, you may have grounds for legal action against Zimmer. The Chicago personal injury lawyers at McNabola & Associates, LLC are prepared to review your potential case and help you understand your legal options.

Zimmer Knee Replacement Lawsuits are Underway
According to the FDA recall, more than one-third of all reported complaints to Zimmer involved radiolucent lines (gaps in the device’s components or gaps between the device and the patient’s bones), symptomatic problems, and the need for painful and expensive revision surgery. While total knee replacements should last between 15 and 20 years, Zimmer’s product has experienced a high failure rate, with many patients experiencing device failure in just a few years.
Because Persona was approved through the FDA’s 510(k) process, which allows products to enter the market with limited to no clinical testing, there is no long-term data on the device, and innocent people have suffered for it. Our Chicago product liability lawyers are prepared to take action to ensure that Zimmer is held accountable for marketing this defective product.
