Power Morcellator Lawsuit Attorney

Serving Nationwide

Power morcellators are used by surgeons during routine hysterectomies, myomectomies, and other laparoscopic procedures. These tools perform the cutting of internal tissue. Morcellators have rotating blades that separate large masses into smaller fragments so that they are easily vacuumed out of the body. This allows surgeons to make small incisions and remove fibroids or other tissues without the possible complications that come with regular surgery. Uterine fibroids are quite common and noncancerous. They grow in the muscular tissue found in the uterus. Most women develop these growths at some point in life and never have any symptoms. However, when symptoms are present, it is not unusual to experience pelvic pain, excessive menstrual bleeding, or frequent urination. To remove these growths, many patients opt for laparoscopic surgeries. These are less invasive than other procedures and allow individuals to enjoy less painful and shorter recoveries. However, most doctors who perform these surgeries utilize morcellator devices.

History of Morcellators

Tissue removal devices were developed in the 1970s. The first electric morcellator was approved by the FDA in 1993 through the 510(k) process. This product was manufactured by Cook Urological, Inc. and was named “Cook Tissue Morcellator.” Similar devices were introduced through the same process. The 501(k) application states no clinical data is necessary to support premarket notification. In other words, after the introduction of the first product, no further testing is needed to market similar products. This opens the door for significant problems and casts serious questions against the FDA’s approval techniques.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
