Shoulder surgery can be an extremely painful medical procedure, requiring significant post-operation pain management. Shoulder pain pumps are small plastic catheters, surgically implanted into the shoulder. They deliver pain medication directly to your shoulder for the first few days after surgery.
While the pumps have proved an effective pain-relief tool, they’ve also been linked to a debilitating condition called Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis, or PAGCL. This condition causes progressive cartilage loss in your shoulder joint, resulting in excruciating pain and decreased range of motion.
If you’ve been diagnosed with PAGCL or are suffering from the painful complications associated with using a shoulder pain pump, it is critical that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation through pain pump litigation, and a Goldblatt Singer attorney will help you understand your legal rights.
