Transcript - Medical Devices
According to Food and Drug Administration reports, recalls of high-risk medical devices have been on the rise since 2008. Yet the FDA continues to approve these devices for consumers, even after the United States Government Accountability Office and Department of Health and Human Services urged them to make changes to their premarket approval process. In fact, the FDA itself does not even test these products. Instead, they rely on the manufacturers' testing to approve even the most high-risk medical devices, like pacemakers and heart valve replacements. In the last five years 232 medical devices were recalled including spinal fuse plates, artery grafts, hip implants, knee implants and even infant warmers. The medical device industry is booming, with profits expected to be over 200-billion dollars in the next year. Yet many companies are not being held accountable for the products they make when something goes wrong. And the same administration who approves these products have reports that show they themselves are ultimately failing! The whole process is flawed. Our goal at Moll Law Group is to identify defective medical devices and have them removed from the market to prevent injuries and save lives.
