Dr. Richard Berger, a Chicago surgeon who was a long time user of Zimmer implants, has urged the manufacturer to recall some of its artificial knee implants, reports the New York Times.

Dr. Berger was a long-time consultant to Zimmer on its products. He began experiencing premature failure of the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral knee replacement. A 2010 study indicates that the failure rate after only a few years may be as high as 9%. The study reveals that 36% of patients implanted with the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Porous show signs of implant loosening after only 2 years.
Zimmer has responded by criticizing Dr. Berger's surgical technique, which is interesting, because over the years Zimmer has paid Dr. Berger almost $8 million to lecture and train surgeons in how to use and implant this and other Zimmer products.
