On June 19, 2010, the NYTimes reported in “Surgeon vs. Knee Maker: Who’s Rejecting Whom?”, an insightful story by Barry Meier, on a growing controversy between Zimmer Holdings, an orthopaedic joint implant manufacturer and a former Physician/Spokesperson Dr. Richard A. Berger.

Dr. Berger has become an outspoken critic of a product he once promoted. He now claims that Zimmers knee joints have the potential to generate excessive pressure because of their innovative design leading to a high failure rate in patients. This results in patients need a revision surgery and explanation of medical hardware.

Specifically, Dr. Berger is critical of the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex a particular model. The NYTimes quoted their former spokesman as saying “I have lost confidence”.

Zambrano, P.A., is investigating cases of explanation, the need for revision surgery and related monetary damages, as well as injuries from the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex.
