OtisKnee Surgical Knee-Replacements
Injuries Possible, Device Was Not FDA Approved
OtisMed Corporation, the maker of the OtisKnee, marketed and sold more than 18,000 knee-replacement devices without having FDA approval. The FDA rejected OtisMed’s application for the OtisKnee device after the company failed to prove that the product was safe and effective.
In December of 2014, OtisMed’s former chief executive officer admitted to intentionally marketing and distributing the OtisKnee devices after their application for for FDA approval was rejected. In December of 2014 the U.S. Justice Department ordered OtisMed to pay $80 million in criminal and civil fines.
