Mark Harvey makes PEEK implant claim on behalf of patient

Mark Harvey has been instructed by a patient implanted with the PEEK (polyetheretherketone) implant in his shoulder. The treatment was undertaken by Simon Lambert, a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, a good hospital providing important and effective healthcare for many but concerns have been acknowledged about this treatment in this patient and 19 others.

“I am sorry to say that a treatment designed to make this patient’s life easier, has in fact caused a considerable increase in his disability. We will want to work with the manufacturers and the clinical team to find suitable treatment or alternative devices urgently in this PEEK implant claim to vastly improve the quality of life this patient currently endures.”
