Katie Korgaokar captures the attention of a Senate panel examining medical device safety on Capitol Hill with her story of a faulty ASR hip implant made by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., accusing the surgeon who implanted the device of receiving more than $600,000 in consulting fees from DePuy.
More than 96,000 patients have been affected by the massive global recall of a total hip replacement system made by DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Katie Korgaokar, one of those unlucky patients, spoke for all of them today at a U.S. Senate hearing on medical device safety.
"I thought I was getting good advice. I researched the doctor. I picked him. I just don't know what I could've done differently," she said. "It still blows me away that something that goes into the body doesn't get tested properly."
