Biomet Hip Replacement Injury Lawyers
The Biomet M2a-Magnum hip is a metal on metal (MoM) hip replacement device. That means it is designed with metal parts in the place of both the artificial ball and cup. Thousands of complaints have been filed with the FDA from patients who have suffered serious injury after receiving MoM hip replacement implants. Many of these injuries were a result of the hip replacement wearing down or components loosening or becoming misaligned. Possible side effects from these devices include:
- Tissue death
- Elevated blood metal levels
- Pain and Burning
- Vision loss
- Heart Damage
In many of these instances, additional surgery was necessary. Thousands of patients who received Biomet M2a-Magnum hip replacements suffered serious injuries like those mentioned above. In many cases, revision surgeries were necessary within just a few years of implantation due to the defect in these devices. Further, Biomet failed to warn doctors and patients of the risk of using its metal on metal hip implant devices even after adverse event reports were filed with the FDA.
