The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Kathleen Drago and her husband. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on July 6th, 2012, Massachusetts resident Kathleen Drago and her husband Ronald filed a lawsuit in Missouri Eastern District Court (case no. 4:2012cv01214) alleging she suffered severe complications from her Zimmer’s NexGen CR-Flex devices in both knees. The NexGen Knee is manufactured by Zimmer Holdings a medical device manufacturer specializing in orthopedic implants. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she was implanted Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex devices in both knees in 2009. After the surgery, Drago claims in the lawsuit that, she started experiencing Zimmer NexGen Knee Side Effects including implant loosening and she underwent revision surgeries on both knees in 2010.
This new lawsuit might be transferred to the Zimmer NexGen knee failure Multidistrict Litigation. The Zimmer NexGen knee MDL (MDL No. 2272) is currently ongoing in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois consolidating lawsuits involving several Zimmer NexGen knee models: the CR-Flex, the GSF CR-Flex, the GSF LPS-Flex, the LPS-Flex and the MIS Tibial.
