National Medical Product Liability Attorneys
The power morcellator manufactured by Johnson & Johnson is used in woman undergoing certain fibroid removal surgeries including laparoscopic procedures, myomectomies, and hysterectomies. The morcellator, however, has been linked to serious and fatal uterine cancers. Even though the devices have been used for decades, the U.S. Department of Justice has recently opened investigations into the potential links between minimally invasive morcellator surgeries and cancer.
If you or a loved one has developed serious complications after a power morcellator operation, contact our medical product liability attorneys at Johnston Law Group. We can be reached at (844) 464-0062.
Risks & Dangers
The FDA has estimated that nearly one in 350 women suffer serious cancer-related complications due to what is otherwise a minimally invasive procedure. The power morcellator has been linked to uterine sarcomas, such as leiomyosarcoma, especially when previously undiagnosed.
Therefore, women who have experienced any of the following may be entitled to compensation:
- Inadequate warning of potential risks
- Upstaging a lower stage cancer to a higher, more deadly cancer
- Upstaging an undiagnosed cancer
- Decreasing a patient’s chances of survival after surgery
