Bilateral Biomet Hip Implants Cause Maryland Man Severe Pain, Elevated Metal Ion Levels, and Revision Surgeries, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:12/2/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a 60-year-old Maryland man who alleges that the Biomet M2a Magnum metal-on-metal hip replacement system, which he had implanted on both sides, is defective. The implant in each leg caused him to suffer pain and other injuries, and caused him to undergo two revision surgeries to have the bilateral devices explanted and replaced.

Biomet, Inc. and Biomet Orthopedics, LLC have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff received bilateral hip implants—specifically, Biomet’s M2a Magnum Hip System, which has a 38-mm M2a ball-and-socket design with a porous-coated lateralized Taperloc femoral device. The lawsuit alleges that the Plaintiff began to suffer from a number of symptoms, including severe groin pain, elevated metal serum ion levels and other injuries. The lawsuit alleges that the Plaintiff underwent revision surgery to remove and replace the left hip device, which had failed; and thereafter, he underwent revision surgery to remove and replace the failed right hip device.

The lawsuit alleges that by the time the Plaintiff was implanted with the two Biomet devices, the Defendants had full knowledge that more than 100 adverse event reports tied to the device had been sent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA); however, the Defendants neglected to advise the plaintiff of this potentially damaging information. Instead, according to the lawsuit’s allegations, the Defe
