Intra-Articular Pain Pumps
Nashville Pain Pump Attorneys
In order to reduce the discomfort in patients undergoing shoulder surgery, intra-articular pain pumps have been used by doctors to manage post-surgical pain. The pump works by placing a catheter in the shoulder joint during surgery, which remains in place for days or weeks afterwards. Some orthopedic surgeons, however, have noticed a connection between intra-articular pain pumps and Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL), a condition that involves the deterioration of the shoulder's cartilage. At
Provost Umphrey, our lawyers work with recognized medical experts and orthopedic surgeons familiar with PAGCL and intra-articular pain pumps. Using medical records and research data, we attempt to establish a causal link between our client's injuries and the use of an intra-articular pain pump.
If you're facing an uncertain work future and rising medical bills due to PAGCL,
