Biomet Metal on Metal Hip Implants

Description:

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.

Background:

This Litigation Group was formed in September 2012.
