- 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.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
