Advocating for the Injured and Protecting Pharmaceutical Whistleblowers
As we begin to depend more on modern medicine the number of people turning to surgical procedures to cure ailments, enhance their bodies, and resolve injuries has increased exponentially. When you undergo a medical procedure or surgery, you expect a certain level of care and dedication. Unfortunately, even after the increasing cost of insurance, the many legislations that the pharmaceutical companies lobby and the relationship these companies have developed with the Food and Drug Administration, we still are seeing many defective surgical devices and defective implants become available to U.S. consumers.

Johnston Law Group believes that manufacturers should be held responsible for their products, especially when medical professionals rely on these devices to help save patients’ lives. For example, in 2017 several of the most dangerous medical devices were instruments used solely in surgical procedures like the Bair Hugger Warming Blanket, responsible for potentially life-threatening deep joint infections in patients getting orthopedic surgeries. 2017 also saw yet another increase in the number of people who underwent a knee replacement surgery, with approximately 700,000 people turning to knee replacement medical devices to cure knee pain and become more mobile.
Since then cases all around the country of metal on metal scraping, loosening, and increased pain have been reported; forcing some plaintiffs to reportedly have several knee revision surgeries, increased medical costs, and additional stresses. The devices reported in these plaintiffs' cases included the Zimmer Persona Knee and Exactech Optetrak knee replacement devices.
Below is a list of common medical devices that can be dangerous:
- IVC Filters - used for blood clots
- Bair Hugger - warming blankets used during surgery
- Hip and Knee Implants - certain brands are less durable
- Morcellator - manufactured by Johnson & Johnson
- Transvaginal Mesh - used to treat urinary incontinence
- Hernia Mesh - used to surgically repair hernias
