Lawsuit alleges fake spinal parts used by doctors and hospitals nationwide

By Karen Foshay

LOS ANGELES – Fifteen surgeons and 17 hospitals nationwide along with more than a dozen other people, are accused of participating in a counterfeit spinal-hardware ring that resulted in patients receiving non-FDA approved implants, according to a civil complaint obtained by America Tonight.

The document, which was filed in February in California on behalf of dozens of insurance companies, was unsealed Thursday and details a massive alleged health care fraud scheme and conspiracy involving the use and billing of fake surgical hardware to hospitals and doctors across the country.
