Start with these two and the chips will fall. They'll all sell each other out quickly when the heat is on them. Look for the upper mangement to rat out everyone.

Suit Says Spinal Disk Maker Falsely Won F.D.A. Approval
By REED ABELSON

A patient suing the maker of an artificial spinal disk now says the original maker of the device, Spine Solutions, and the investment firm that financed its development misled patients and federal regulators about the disk’s safety and effectiveness.

Earlier this year the patient, Calvin Timberlake, sued Synthes, the disk’s current maker, because he said the device, the Prodisc, had come apart in his back and had to be removed surgically, leaving him in severe pain. On Thursday he added Spine Solutions and the investment firm Viscogliosi Brothers to the suit.

Mr. Timberlake and his lawsuit were mentioned in a January article in The New York Times that reported that many of the doctors who had conducted the clinical research for the Prodisc stood to benefit financially if it won approval from the Food and Drug Administration. That approval came in 2006.

The amended lawsuit by Mr. Timberlake claims that the Viscogliosi firm, and the three brothers running it — Marc, John and Anthony — “were under tremendous pressure” to sell Spine Solutions and receive F.D.A. approval for the Prodisc because they needed to repay “embezzled funds” and “prevent financial ruin and likely criminal indictment.”

Synthes, which agreed to acquire Spine Solutions for $350 million in 2003, declined to comment Thursday on Mr. Timberlake’s lawsuit.

Describing the lawsuit as “completely baseless and without merit,” Viscogliosi Brothers said in a statement that it would “aggressively defend themselves” and “take all remedies to defend their reputations and achieve justice.”

According to the lawsuit, in September 2002 the Manhattan district attorney’s office became aware of accusations that the firm’s principals had embezzled money from its investors and began an investigation.

“At no time, even after intense reviews, did any government agency pursue any action against Viscogliosi Brothers,” the firm said, saying all of the judicial and regulatory bodies reviewing the claims had either dismissed them or did not pursue them.

In an earlier interview, Daniel J. Castleman, chief of investigations for the Manhattan district attorney, said, “We examined the allegations and found they lacked prosecutorial merit, as investors recouped their investments and more.”

Mr. Timberlake’s lawsuit also contends that Viscogliosi Brothers “intentionally set up an inherent conflict” in the clinical research by finding surgeons who would invest in Viscogliosi funds that financed the Prodisc and who would serve as researchers.

Doctors at about half of the 17 research centers involved in the study stood to profit financially if the Prodisc succeeded, according to confidential information from a patient’s lawsuit settled last year.

The companies behind the Prodisc have previously said the researchers’ financial interests had no impact on findings of the research, which they say have been published in various peer-reviewed medical journals.

In Thursday’s statement, Viscogliosi Brothers said it is “proud of their achievement in this area and with the technology that has given thousands of patients hope and relief from spinal pain.” The Prodisc has undergone two separate assessments by the F.D.A., one for use in the lower back and the other for the neck, the firm added.

In light of Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision that would protect medical device companies from many personal-injury lawsuits if the products were approved by the F.D.A., Jim Cole, the lawyer representing Mr. Timberlake, said his case differed from that one in several ways.

He said the fact that many of the doctors performing the research had a financial interest in the outcome raised questions about the validity of the data supplied to the F.D.A. He also said that the disk had not been manufactured according to the specifications approved by the F.D.A.

Another example of the arrogance of Synthes. We need not follow the rules. After all, we are Synthes. Treat people like shit. Break the rules whenever possible. No regard for the patient, just the money in everyone's pockets. Sounds like a place everyone should aspire to work.

Are you Synthes? I'll need a lot more information, names and examples of business impropriaties that could withstand the scrutiny of a grand jury investigation.

It is very difficult, virtually impossible for that matter, to judge the veracity of anonymous posters. Those that are laden with hate and/or profanity are easily dismissed as being posted by someone with an agenda. The post above is ridiculous, Synthes has always been, and will continue to be, about the patient. To imply anything otherwise is ludicrous. Synthes does not condone the practice of breaking rules, does not discriminate against minorities or women, and in fact treats their employees quite well.

Thanks for posting Synthes HR. Your department is terrified to have EE0C poking aroud your files. Since HR is watching this blog-- answer us this.- How many African -Americans work for Synthes as consultants?? Don't dare say we have so many in our manufacturing departments. Were not talking about line workers or janitors. How many work as consultants? How many women consultants??? You have no credibility in HR. We have all seen how Hansjorg, Gennett and Coburn have behaved. But once again thanks Paoli for keeping tabs on this blog.

Orlando tech. A typical OR smartass who is probably the first dipshit to call for a rep at 2am because he can't figure out how to use a small frag set. Fuck off about Orlando. You should be blessed that we even come after dealing with your beligerence.

Also from O-town work in OR. I overheard our Synthes rep Dunlap talking with an ortho sports meds rep Mike Pitts about some other Synthes rep outside O-town named Larry. Dunlap was telling Pitts that Larry had a heart attack or some kind of cardiac condition and was now disabled. Dunlap was totally violating HIPPA rules. Must be nice to be above the rules. My ass would be fired! I'd like to know what's going on to. My buddy works at South and there on there 5th Synthes rep in 4 years.

Do you work in Orlando? If so, you would be the last person I would call at 2am. The last Synthes rep who arrived after midnight reaked of beer. Must be nice to make more $$ than our surgeons and come to work half shit faced.

As for your "surgical brilliance" any idiot could read a tech guide. I heard the first thing you geniuses receive in training is a coloring book for you anatomy lessons!

Grow and up stop with these stupid posts They get you no where...try focusing on your job and maybe one day you will be successful. You are only making a fool of yourself and because you are anonymous or think you are anonymous we still know who you are. Just so you know you can do what ever you want to hurt Synthes but "You sir" will always be a disgruntled employee who is forever LOST in the pursuit of happiness. And the fact is everyone knows it. They know who you are and what your about and your so-called nice guy facade has tarnished. The more you persist the more of a domino effect you will create..ultimately hurting YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY. Sometimes you know too much to be dangerous and this is a time to stop and think about what your doing and what you are planning to do before it all implodes on you. And it will because it always does. Now matter who you are..SIR. Go on with your life and forget the past. While trying to destroy others you are destroying yourself. What goes around surely comes around.

Are you threatening me and my family? You tone is threatening. Why did you capitalize, "YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY"? You are obviously attempting to intimidate me. Since you think you know who I am when should I expect your goons to arrive. Tell them to take the Jersey Turnpike they'll get here much quicker.

This veiled anonymous threat was clearly drafted to intimidate the previous individual. I know who you are and your motivation for sending this message. Believe me when I say that nobody is anonymous on this blog site. Threats, no matter the level, are not taken lightly. This will be thoroughly investigated.

I can see it now. Some "professional" standing in front of a room full of wide eyed wannabes saying, "now class, color the femur blue. Color the Tibia green and the fibula, let's make that purple. Pass your papers up and you'll get them back tomorrow. If you get them all correct, I'll give you your gold star." What a bunch of freakin losers!

That's not the way it goes down. The coloring book is usually done voluntarily, coloring pages are not usually collected graded and returned with a sticker on the top asking for your mom's signature. People use the coloring book as a study guide while they are also reading an anatomy text. By the way, an anatomy text for you surgical techs out there is a book usually large with photos or drawings of anatomy (the body) and is quite detailed. The coloring book has scaled down drawings of vessels (these are arteries and veins that lead away or to the heart, organs, etc). You didn't learn this at the community college or technical school program that you attended but these books do exist and are very helpful when you are going to be working in some capacity with human bodies.

Don't be afraid of suing Synthes if you are being discriminated against, bullied and being subjected to a hostile work environment. I sued Synthes and won. I'd like to say more, but I can't! The important part is that I won and I also had my legal fees paid for. Do not be afraid!

My first advice to you all is to document everything. Secondly, get an employment lawyer. Consult your lawyer before you contact the Synthes Human Resource Department. HR is not in your favor, do not fall for their ploys! You will need to go on record with a complaint at HR at some point, let your lawyer guide you through this process. Make sure to let your lawyer know that Jackie Meister, the HR manager, is not to be trusted! Jackie Meister sounds and appears to be a very caring and nice, she is not! I know this for a fact!

The best revenge, however, is moving forward and living well! My revenge was getting a job in the industry that pays twice as much as what I made with Synthes, and having to work nearly 100% less!!!! Not to mention my new house - with no mortgage!!!

Arrow Re: Class Action Law Suit Against Synthes

Couldn't be more right about jackie meister.............can't be trusted. Known to have been involved with a Spine VP and continues to protect that VP despite over 50 complaints and 2+ lawsuits in the past two years. Funny how they support these people and amazing how they will go after hard working credible rep (5+ successful years) that made them tons of money over the years. If HR would just invest more of their time to solving Synthes problems in Spine/Trauma rather than going after reps who worked their asses off while tenured at Synthes people wouldn't leave. Synthes is a great company but its run by absolute arrogant idiots that hire more idiots so the morons below them will never question their authority nor become aware of thier superiors incompetence. Synthes will be sued again...and lose again. Trust me. Idiots can't even get more than 13.5 million. trust me globus is laughing

i am currently employed by synthes, but was not surprised by this law suit. it's sad that in this day and age we have to go through such battles just to make an honest living. i have been under tremendous stress that has been placed on me since working there. i have been belittled, indirectly of course but since i am smarter than what has been thought i can read right through it all. i feel i give 100% as far as working is concerned but i also feel that in ways i am cheated of opportunities that i qualify for. several changes have been made throughout the company that has made the place feel more like a prison than a place to value. we are not allowed to talk most of the time, and if we are caught laughing we get additional work tossed our way. not only do we have to do our duties under our job description but we also have to pick up thye slack for two other departments on the daily basis.

I felt the same way as the last person who posted the reply on 04-28-2008, 08:44 PM; Synthes is not the Synthes I came to work for a few years ago. Their management style has changed for the worst. Today, it is high pressure tactics to squeeze more sweat & blood out of each employee. It feels like working under the ocean with the world's water pressured against you. Deadlines are ridiculously short while other departments take their sweet time without any repercussions. Double and triple standards abound in Synthes.

My first advice to you all is to document everything. Secondly, get an employment lawyer. Consult your lawyer before you contact the Synthes Human Resource Department. HR is not in your favor, do not fall for their ploys! You will need to go on record with a complaint at HR at some point, let your lawyer guide you through this process. Make sure to let your lawyer know that Jackie Meister, the HR manager, is not to be trusted! Jackie Meister sounds and appears to be a very caring and nice, she is not! I know this for a fact!

The best revenge, however, is moving forward and living well! My revenge was getting a job in the industry that pays twice as much as what I made with Synthes, and having to work nearly 100% less!!!! Not to mention my new house - with no mortgage!!!
By chance could you divulge a contact number of the firm that represented you in your lawsuit against Synthes?

Default Re: Class Action Law Suit Against Synthes

Wow! Wish I had of come to this website before now. googled wrongful terminations and Synthes and it led me right here. Could not have said it better about Jackie Meister...I learned the hard way..she will put on the world's biggest empathetic act and so you have nothing to hide and share all. Then something of no fault of your own (and trust me, I have NO problem taking responsibility if I have done anything wrong) gets you wrongfully terminated. Oh and that sign here or be fired crap is ridiculous. Was never on probation, never warned, manager will say I was a stellar consultant but I am out the door.

I am talking to an attorney who plans to file suit. I just wish I knew who this VP was she gets it on with....any hints...SUSA, Spine, CMF? Half of those old chicks up there have incestuous relationships with anyone from new trainees to AVP's sons right up the food chain...and this comes from the proverbial horses' mouths.

Jackie Meister got it on with none other than Rick Gennett. Under what grounds or circumstances are you being fired or asked to resign? Are you female? What region do you work and how many females remain employed? If you are female I can help you...

Jackie Meister is EVIL!!!!!

Synthes does suck balls, I interviewed with them and I was the best candidate and they hired the Mangers nephew just to get him a job out of college. Synthes is corrupt. Fuck them

In all do respect, how will this information help your case? Lawyers, judges, and jurys want facts. I too had a very similiar experience, but knowing who Ms. Meister may or may not have had relations with is irrelevent. You need solid facts and evidence. I contain this information. I can help you and your retained attorney but I need assurances. Please provide additional information. I need to know the state in which you were terminated and the events that led to your termination. I am extremely credible and well versed in legal matters. You must be patient and build an extremely solid and credible case before you bring this before a judge and jury. Convince me and I will come forward for a one on one with legal council at a mutually convenient location.

I for one, won a solid victory and very gratifying lawsuit against Synthes! I was awarded lots of money and it felt more than great to look into Jackie Meister's eyes and say, "you lost, I won bitch"! Jackie Meister turned out to be the most deceptive person on earth that I have ever met! Jackie Meister is lower than shit, spit, or whatever else fits this bill! No kidding!

Excuse me for being curious about who Jackie M. boned...I am very well-educated and well-versed in the legal system myself, but doesn't mean I wasn't curious since they say this VP was from Spine. Wouldn't be surprised if she spans her choices across all 3 lines but that is just an assumption, not a statement, so Synthes HR, if you're reading this board, realize I am not saying anything libelous and deal with it.

I have spoken with an attorney and I too have what he believes to be an airtight case. Even my manager agreed that my reasons for being let go were "F*cked up" but that HR presented it to legal and legal thought they were well within their rights.

I am sure if my mgr reads this website, since I just quoted him, he knows who this is. I actually had a great team, a great manager (but realize your mgr is just a puppet whose strings are being pulled by corporate once something like this goes down).

As I stated before, never warned or written up for anything....my inbox was filled with nothing but praise from my manager, teammates, even managers of other regions if I had covered a case or shared info I thought their team could use also.

I was a Spine SC. I am sure the rumor mill is flying so it won't be hard to figure out who I am. I would be very interested in talking to the female who was terminated. I had been approached in the field by two other distributors who were shocked when they saw "Synthes" on my bag as they were like "WOW..Synthes doesn't hire women!"

Actually that isn't true in my area anymore as since my hire at least three more have been hired.

On a separate note, how many of you females were treated like b*tches (undeserving of course) , by one or more female training staff members simply because you were probably cute and didn't have the right equipment between your legs? I have never seen so many "fishing off the company pier attempts" in my life. Despite a stellar training record, the mgr of that division seems poised to get you if you are an attractive female....but that's really irrelevant at this point and is actually being investigated by my RM who is male, but has begun to feel the same way after reviews of comments, etc.

Thanks for the responses! Good luck!

I was in regulatory compliance and was paid hush money before they booted me out for being professional and finding skeletons in the closet- so I would not go to FDA because I was ethical and found so many things wrong. I am ethical- I did not go the FDA- FDA found out about the company afterwards... 2 civil money penalties...
