Medtronic List of Consultants Omits Name of Surgeon Accused of Falsifying Data in Study

The Wall Street Journal reports, “US Sen. Charles Grassley expressed concern that a list of consultants provided to him by Medtronic Inc. doesn’t include a doctor accused of falsifying data in a favorable study of the company’s Infuse bone-graft product.” The list “of 22 consultants provided to Sen. Grassley as part of a request for information he made in October” does not include surgeon Timothy Kuklo, who Medtronic “has said…was a consultant.” In a May 18 letter to Medtronic Chief Executive Bill Hawkins, Sen. Grassley wrote that he is “concerned that Medtronic did not include Dr. Timothy Kuklo in response to [his] written request.” The New York Times and the AP also report the story.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
