My son has had an AHS Penta stimulator (a paddle) implanted in November 2012. In March 2013, he had a second surgery as the first one did not work. Now, in June 2013 the unit still does not work, at all, and he has been told they need to go back in and readjust. I am looking for a lawyer to represent him in this matter. He has had over 30 surgeries or medical procedures to allieve his pain from an automobile accident. He also has two pain management specialists, the one who preformed this surgery after selling him on the idea the St Judes unit would eliminate his pain, is a Nurosurgeon. I am angry and I am going to find a lawyer in Texas who is knowledgable about these units and we will see who is at fault.View Thread
