Shoulder Pain Pump Lawyer & Lawsuit

Recent studies have linked the use of shoulder pain pumps following arthroscopic shoulder surgery to a rare, life-altering condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL).

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective shoulder pain pump, you should contact our lawyers immediately for a free confidential case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and we can help.

Pain Pumps & Arthroscopic Surgery

The shoulder is a highly complex joint, possessing a large range of motion that leaves it vulnerable to a number of injuries that can lead to painful, debilitating instability. Unfortunately, even a minor shoulder injury can lead to permanent damage. When surgery is performed to repair the injury, pain pumps are often used to manage the pain. Pain pumps are designed to provide post-operative pain relief with a reduced dosage of narcotics.

What’s the problem with shoulder pain pumps?

A number of recent studies have linked pain pumps to severe cartilage damage in the shoulder. This condition is known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL), which refers to the dissolution of the cartilage space between the shoulder. Because PAGCL permanently destroys cartilage in the shoulder joint, patients who developed the condition often suffer from constant pain and a limited range of motion. Symptoms of PAGCL may include (but are not limited to):

  • Stiff shoulder
  • Clicking shoulder
  • Popping shoulder
  • Grinding shoulder
  • Shoulder weakness

While PAGCL is an extremely painful physical condition, injured victims often say that the depression and anxiety that accompany it can be worse.
