Joint replacements are the #1 expenditure of Medicare. The process of approving these medical devices is flawed according to the Institute of Medicine. It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

Act now & you can help!

Call and write to your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Congress(wo)man :

Let your legislators know you are watching and want to make sure they don't sacrifice safer review of devices when negotiating MDUFA.  The medical device industry has an active, powerful lobby but individual taxpayers/patients/citizens are a potent antidote for the paid lobbyist!   Please join me and many others in this effort. 

Thank you so much and have a very Happy (and healthy) New Year!
