Biomet Metal on Metal Hip Implant

The AAJ Biomet Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Litigation Group will address the issues surrounding the latest hip replacement system. Biomet continues to produce metal-on-metal hip replacement devices despite ever-increasing numbers of complaints to the FDA, high failure rates, as well as scientific studies with findings that suggest metal-on-metal hip devices increase the risk of revision surgery. The FDA has expressed concern for metal-on-metal hip replacement devices, and the impact of metal ions generally. The Biomet Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Litigation Group member benefits include a group document library, list server, and education programs.

  • Meetings: The group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions.
  • Membership: The group is limited to AAJ Regular, Life, Sustaining, Leader Forum, and President’s Club member only.
  • Annual Dues: $300/attorney, $100/additional attorney ($400 max)
