Nuvasive, Inc. Blames Doctor in Case Involving NVM5 Neuromonitor

On February 28, 2012, our client Edith went in for surgery where the doctor used the NVM5 neuromonitor manufactured by Nuvasive, Inc. In the middle of the surgery, the orthopedic doctor aborted the procedure. Nuvasive admitted in emails to the doctor that their product did not work properly during the procedure and explained what they would do to prevent problems in the future. The patient incurred damage to her lumbar plexus which affected her ability to walk. Nuvasive now blames the doctor for the injury to the patient. The case is set for trial in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas in October of 2014.
