Portland Surgical Errors Attorneys

Orthopedic surgery is supposed to take care of joint and bone problems that prohibit the movement, free of pain. Manufacturers of orthopedic implants are required to put their products through rigorous testing before releasing them to the medical marketplace. Orthopedic surgeons are required to undergo extensive training and oversight to ensure they know the surgical procedures appropriate for the specific implant or repair of tissue and bone.

Orthopedic surgery refers to any type of surgery to the musculoskeletal system, including injuries and disease resulting from:

  • Joint replacement
  • Bone fracture repair
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Congenital disorders
  • Tumor removal
  • Repetitive stress

DePuy Orthopedic Hip Replacement Implants

Unfortunately, medical product manufacturers often take shortcuts when releasing an orthopedic product. FDA rules allow manufacturers to seek approval for a part, but then do not require further tests if an individual component requires a redesign for safety reasons. In the case of the recent recall of DePuy prosthetic hip socket, the product was released after testing, but the manufacturers (Johnson & Johnson) failed to get approval for a faulty component, causing many patients to suffer pain and inflammation when the system failed in the body.

We also have a satellite office available in Eugene for our clients' convenience.
