What is the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Knee?

By: LawInfo

The nexGen CR-Flex Knee is a partial knee replacement product produced by Zimmer.  Each knee replacement includes three components:

  • A metal femoral component that replaces the end of the femur (thigh bone
  • A metal tibial base plate that replaces the top of the tibia (shin bone),
  • A plastic articular surface component.  It is loosely attached to the tibial base plate.  The plastic articular surface component acts the same way the traditional cartilage would.
