- Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant | Accidents & Injury
Biomet Orthopedics is the manufacturer of the Biomet M2A Magnum hip implant, a popular device used for hip replacement in the United States. Metal-on-metal hip replacement has grown to become one of the most popular orthopedic technologies used across the nation. Unfortunately, however, recent reports have highlighted serious concerns regarding the safety of this device and the potential complications that may follow this type of surgery.
Biomet M2A Magnum is made up of entirely metal components. This contrasts greatly with the majority of competing hip implants which are typically constructed using both metal and plastic materials. Patients have reported experiencing a wide range of different adverse side effects following these hip implant surgeries. As a result, there has been a rise in the number of lawsuits being filed against Biomet Orthopedics.
Phillips Law Group has years of experience in defective medical product litigation. As such, our Phoenix personal injury lawyers are currently investigating the Biomet M2A Magnum hip implant as well as Biomet Orthopedics regarding the health concerns and complications that many Arizona residents have experienced. If you or a loved one has suffered from any type of medical issues following a Biomet M2A Magnum hip replacement, our Arizona product liability attorneys are here for you.

Side Effects of Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant
Metal-on-metal hip implants have become one of the standards of hip replacement procedures in the United States today. Over 80,000 metal-on-metal hip implants are placed in patients each year across the country. However, these procedures are now being reviewed due to the massive number of individuals experiencing negative complications following these surgeries.
The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now required over 20 metal-on-metal hip implant manufacturers to record specific data regarding the presence of metal in the blood of hip implant recipients as well as the monitoring of blood levels in patients and the specific complications associated with them. Therefore, any Arizona patient who has had this surgery in the past must be thoroughly aware of any adverse health side effects present.
The following are some of the most common complications linked to Biomet M2A Magnum hip implants:
- Climbing failure rate of implant
- Pseudotumors (fluid pockets)
- Metal poisoning
- Loosening of hip implant
- Cobalt and chromium ion levels increase
- Unexplained hip pain
- Damages to the tissues and bones surrounding the joint
- Tissue discoloration
- Hip implant explanation surgery (implant is replaced and/or removed)
- Increases of pain in implant location as well as the back and groin
- Problems walking or standing
- Unexplained tumors
- Osteolysis (bone loss)
- Damage and swelling to soft tissue
- Necrosis (tissue death)
While the FDAs involvement serves to help shed light on the dangers associated with this hip replacement surgery, all patients must keep tabs on their current state of health. Continually monitoring your condition is imperative to avoiding further damage. If you or a loved one has experienced any negative side effects after this type of hip surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.

Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
