Spinal Surgery Alert Involving Medtronic Implants

Home / Blog / Spinal Surgery Alert Involving Medtronic Implants

Medical Malpractice can occur when Medtronic Implants are improperly used during spinal surgery.

The New York medical malpractice lawyers of the Raphaelson and Levine Law Firm P.C. and the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Firm through our joint resources have identified improperly used Medtronic devices as an area of potential malpractice. The September 4, 2008, Wall Street Journal has confirmed that a potent substance used in spine-repair surgery to promote bone growth has been linked to life-threatening complications in dozens of patients.

Many of the complications involving the product, Medtronic Inc.’s “Infuse Bone Graft,” have occurred during “off label” uses, when surgeons use it in ways that haven’t been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

If you have serious complications following spinal surgery that involved Medtronic products, in addition to obvious product liability claims against Medtronic, Medical Malpractice claims may exist against the doctor for improperly using the product.
