Biomet Metal on Metal Hip Implants | The American Association For Justice

Biomet Metal on Metal Hip Implants


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.


This Litigation Group was formed in September 2012.
