Pa. company admits crime in secret human bone-cement experiments

Because many of our clients undergo spine surgery to repair herniated discs caused by work injuries or automobile accidents, this story caught my eye. Basically, this company was giving untested bone cement to doctors to use during spinal surgeries, when the patients knew nothing of their guinea pig status. The company was experimenting on humans without their knowledge, and apparently, people died because of it.

What is unclear from the story is the role of the doctors. I could not confirm if any of the doctors who performed the surgeries were complicit in the crime.

This is such a heinous crime where humans are being experimented upon without their knowledge. The doctors involved in this crime should get a severe punishment.Lawandy
