Warning: Power Morcellator

devices linked to uterine cancer.

If you or a loved one had surgery where a power morcellator device was used and were diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

What are Power Morcellators?

A power morcellator is a small surgical instrument that uses tiny blades to break up large tissue masses into smaller fragments, making it easier to remove them from the body. Power morcellators are used by gynecologists while performing hysterectomies or removing uterine fibroids, the device allows for smaller incisions and less invasive surgery than a traditional hysterectomy.

Dangers of Power Morcellator Use

Although women are screened for forms of uterine cancer before undergoing a procedure using a power morcellator, some uterine cancers can mimic the appearance of benign uterine fibroids. If the tissue harboring cancerous cells is extracted using a power morcellator, fragments of the cells can spread to other parts of the body, dispersing the disease. The FDA issued a warning in April of 2014 discouraging the use of power morcellators during the removal of uterine fibroids and hysterectomies due to the risk of spreading undetected cancerous tissues.
