Side Effects from Power Morcellators
Experienced Medical Product Injury Lawyers | Protecting the Rights of People Injured by a Power Morcellator | Representation in Texas and Across the United States
If you have gone in for laparoscopic surgery, there’s a chance that medical professionals used a surgical instrument called a “power morcellator.” A morcellator is used in laparoscopic procedures to break up and remove large masses of tissue. The tool is frequently used in a laparoscopic hysterectomy, where surgeons use it to mince the uterus and extract it from the belly cavity. Because of concerns that power morcellators may spread certain cancers, the federal Food and Drug Administration issued a warning in April 2014, recommending that doctors not use the tool in uterine procedures.
If you or someone you love has suffered an adverse health effect after a surgical procedure using a power morcellator, you have a right to seek compensation for any losses you have suffered. The law firm of Bailey & Galyen can help.

The Concerns Tied to Power Morcellators
After the FDA issued a second warning regarding power morcellators in 2014, the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson suspended the sale of the product. According to FDA reports, one in every 350 patients who had laparoscopic surgery using a power morcellator developed an unsuspected uterine sarcoma, a type of cancer.
