Mechanical Cold Therapy After Surgery

There has apparently been an increase in the number of foot and leg amputations resulting from cold therapy after surgery.

Ice, when appropriately used, after surgery and injuries remains the standard of care. There have always been instances of patients failing to obey instructions and developing frostbite with improper ice use.

Recently, machines are being prescribed for cold therapy after surgery, replacing traditional ice therapy. Reportedly, such machines are causing frostbite and circulation problems which result in amputation.

If you or a loved one has suffered with a MAJOR complication from mechanical cold therapy after foot surgery, the attorneys listed on this web site will be happy to review your medical records and let you know whether they can assist you.
