ConforMIS, Inc., is facing a lawsuit alleging that the iTotal G2 knee implant is defective because components can loosen and fail prematurely. This lawsuit cites 30 complaints about the problem between 2011-2014.

A lawsuit involving the ConforMIS iTotal G2 knee replacement has been filed in Texas federal court, but it is not part of a class action — it is an individual lawsuit filed by a woman who contacted an attorney.
Her problems began in December 2013, when she heard a “popping” noise and suffered excruciating pain in her right knee. Her doctor found that the plastic spacer in one knee had come loose and rotated upward into her femur. In the other knee, the tibial tray was loose and caused bone damage.
According to the complaint, ConforMIS failed to adequately test or design the iTotal G2. Lawyers claim that soon after it was approved, the FDA received about 30 complaints of spacer detachment or loosening — but instead of issuing a recall, ConforMIS tried to fix the problem in 2013. Meanwhile, the iTotal G2 was marketed as safe and effective.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Texas trial attorneys are not currently filing a ConforMIS knee class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits and only accepting cases involving the most serious injuries.
You may be eligible to join this litigation if you were injured by:
- Premature failure of the knee replacement
- Chronic pain
- Bone loss
- Loosening or dislocation of the spacer or tibial tray
- Limited mobility
- Revision surgery
- And more
About Class Actions
In the future, it is possible that ConforMIS will face a class action lawsuit involving defective knee replacements — however, class actions typically seek reimbursement for a large group (“class”) of individuals with relatively minor financial losses. They can have major disadvantages for people with severe injuries, especially when plaintiffs must endure high attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement offer.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a ConforMIS Knee Class Action
Our attorneys specialize in helping victims of defective medical devices seek compensation and justice for their injuries. We file lawsuits against corporations who put profits above public safety by selling dangerous knee replacements.
If you were injured by a defective ConforMIS knee replacement, you are not alone. On top of the physical pain, emotional anguish, and disability, you may be facing devastating medical bills, lost income due to time off work, or even unemployment.
There is no way a lawsuit can repair the physical damage to your body, but you could receive substantial financial compensation for your losses. Our lawyers offer free case consultations and we typically work on contingency-fee, which means we only get paid when we win your case.
