Another spine surgeon named in “fake implants” lawsuit — This time in Maryland: 5 key notes

By Laura Dyrda

Another spine surgeon has been named in the “fake implants” lawsuit involving Spinal Solutions, a distribution company cited in 2012 for “quality control issues,” according to a Baltimore Sun report.

Here are five things to know:

1. Health insurance companies are suing Baltimore Washington Medical Center for its role in allowing spine surgeon Randy Davis, MD, to use Spinal Solutions products. The companies allege overbilling for the “fake” implants.

2. There were around 250 patients who received spinal fusion with the Spinal Solutions hardware at Baltimore Washington Medical Center. The company is now defunct after recalling parts used in the lower spine.
