Biomet hip replacement patients have reported experiencing symptoms including severe pain, swelling and difficulty walking from Biomet M2a Magnum hip implants. Despite reports of complications, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not issued a recall of their Biomet hip replacement systems.
Patients may be eligible to file a hip replacement lawsuit against Biomet Inc if they experienced problems such as fretting and corrosion, loosening of the hip implant, metal poisoning or hip implant fractures. Many patients that have experienced complications from Biomet hip implant failure have had to undergo hip revision surgery.
The metal-on-metal design of the Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacement is similar to the DePuy ASR hip replacement recalled in 2010 and the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant systems recalled in 2012.
