Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis
I was recently diagnosed with Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis following my shoulder surgery. Can a New Jersey injury lawyer help me?
Aside from an orthopedist, a New Jersey injury lawyer is one of the best follow-up appointments to make after enduring the onset of Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis. As many orthopedic patients are beginning to realize, this condition is often associated with the implantation of a pain pump near the shoulder joint, and can cause lifelong difficulty and possible reconstructive surgery. If you believe your Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis was caused by a surgical procedure affecting one of your joints, we encourage you to speak with a New Jersey injury lawyer right away.
I think I may have Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis, but I’m not sure. Should I still meet with a New Jersey injury attorney?
The best thing to do before considering legal action is to get confirmation from a reputable medical professional that you do, in fact, have Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis. This condition is categorized by abnormalities in the affected joint, including stiffness, difficulty moving and rotating, clicking sounds, weakness or decreased range of motion. Some clients also report a feeling of a “dead joint,” meaning they tried to move the joint but were unable to make a motion.
Once you receive your diagnosis, your New Jersey injury attorney can review your medical records, documents and invoices to help determine if you have a possible cause of action. This condition, which is relatively new, has been strongly linked to pain pumps implanted near the shoulder.
Your New Jersey injury attorney will explain that pain pumps, once highly-touted as the best way to administer pain medication to post-surgery patients, potentially introduce an increased risk of Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis that many patients did not know existed at the time of consenting to surgery. As such, a New Jersey injury lawyer may be able to help hold the responsible parties liable for any unnecessary shoulder pain or follow-up surgeries required as a result of this failure to warn.
