There has not been a Biomet hip replacement recall, however even though the FDA has not issued a recall, it does not mean that the medical device is safe to consumers. In fact, Biomet hip replacements have been linked to several patients suffering serious complications or having to undergo a second revision surgery. Due to these high failure rates, the FDA is currently reviewing the safety of these hip devices, particularly the Biomet M2A Magnum.
Even though there has not been any recall on the Biomet M2A Magnum, patients suffering complications from this device, do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer. Due to the fact that Biomet Inc. failed to warn individual of the defective nature of the medical device, or “minimize” the risk of the M2A Magnum to patients, they may be held liable and you may be able to receive compensation for the pain and injuries suffered.
