Medical devices are a multibillion-dollar industry, and the financial stakes surrounding FDA approval of new devices can be very high. The competing interests at play in the process have been thrown into sharp relief in a case brought by Calvin Timberlake, a patient who claims to have suffered extreme discomfort and myriad medical problems since having an artificial spinal disk implanted in his back. Timberlake claims that the manufacturer of the device, Spine Solutions, has engaged in many questionable activities, including bribery, fraud, and internal embezzlement. A trial date has not yet been set in the case.
