We consistently hold the makers of unsafe medical devices accountable.
The implantation of medical devices to cure common ailments and basic aging is becoming commonplace. Modern science tells us we can replace hips, rebuild knees—and even hearts—all to suit our active lifestyles.
Most of us have come to trust in the safety of these devices. After all, our doctors recommend these procedures. Surely the companies that manufacture medical devices would not sell them without sufficient testing to ensure the products’ safety.
Unfortunately, the American public’s trust is all too often undeserved. Each year, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is deluged with more than 200,000 reports of medical devices that have malfunctioned or been involved in an injury. In addition, over 2,000 device-related deaths are reported annually. Within just the last few years, recalls have more than doubled for high and moderate-risk medical devices.
