Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Class Action Lawsuit

Medtronic Inc., the nation’s largest medical device maker, is facing over 1,000 Infuse Bone Graft lawsuits that accuse the manufacturer of intentionally concealing dangerous side effects. These spinal surgery patients claim they suffered serious Infuse Bone Graft problems, including male sterility and other genital injuries, nerve damage, excessive bone growth, chronic pain, and difficulty breathing, swallowing, and speaking. These patients further accuse Medtronic of marketing the Infuse Bone Graft for off-label uses, putting thousands of spine surgery patients at risk for dangerous complications.

Class action lawsuit attorneys are currently looking for patients who were injured after undergoing back surgery with an Infuse Bone Graft. These patients can receive a free legal review using the form on this page and determine if they’re eligible to pursue compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Medtronic’s promotion of off-label uses for the Infuse Bone Graft has led to two whistleblower lawsuits and a $40 million settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice in 2006. In addition, Medtronic recently agreed to an $85 million settlement with shareholders who filed a lawsuit over the drop in stock prices related to the DOJ’s investigation.

In 2012, the Senate Finance Committee announced the results of its year-long investigation into allegations Medtronic used false advertising and kickbacks to increase sales of their products. The study revealed that Medtronic paid more than $200 million in consulting fees to authors who were supposed to be studying the efficacy of Infuse.

Hundreds of Infuse Bone Graft lawsuits have been filed in state and federal courts by plaintiffs who allege they suffered serious Infuse Bone Graft complications.
