Medical technology can do amazing things, but sometimes it can have dangerous consequences. The Federal Drug Administration says it receives hundreds of thousands of reports each year of medical devices causing death or serious injury.
Sometimes these devices malfunction, other times they work as expected but then have an unintended side effect, such as spreading cancer cells in the body. In recent years, serious concerns have been raised about the following medical devices: hip replacement implants and tools, knee replacement implants and tools, power morcellators, and transvaginal mesh.
Some of these devices have been recalled while others have been the subject of warnings from the FDA.
