Lawsuit Filed Over Biomet Hip Replacement

A lawsuit has been filed against Biomet Orthopedics, alleging their M2A Magnum metal-on-metal hip replacement system failed too soon after being implanted. The lawsuit alleges the device was defectively designed, allowing metal debris to come off the device and be absorbed by the surrounding tissue, causing a condition known as metallosis. Metallosis can cause soft tissue damage, bone loss, local necrosis and, ultimately, failure of the hip replacement device.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff received the hip replacement in May 2009 and began suffering pain, difficulty walking and inflammation shortly thereafter. Other metal-on-metal hip replacements such as the DePuy ASR have had similar complaints, with the DePuy ASR eventually being recalled.
