Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen client Jeannine Mallard recently spoke with investigative TV reporters Katie LaGrone and Carey Codd to discuss a lawsuit against a Sunrise-based stem cell clinic.
In 2015, Mallard visited the clinic and underwent a procedure to treat her macular degeneration, a progressive eye disease. The clinic told Mallard that the therapy, which she paid $7,000 for, had improved the sight of previous patients. However, shortly after receiving the treatment, Mallard’s illness progressed rapidly, and she suffered a retinal detachment.
She now faces surgery to remove her eye altogether. Her lawsuit against the clinic is led by Andy Yaffa and Alex Arteaga-Gomez, who both spoke with the media to discuss her case.
These investigative reports shed light on the risks and dangerous practices associated with experimental procedures like stem cell injections. At the helm of this litigation to stop clinics from performing bogus surgeries is Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen’s medical malpractice team.
Similar to this, GRYC’s Andrew Yaffa was recently featured in the Washington Post for another lawsuit filed on behalf of a client who went blind after receiving a similar procedure from a Georgia clinic.
Highly experimental and medically unproven procedures, like these stem cell injections, are unregulated by the FDA, and tragic incidents will continue until these therapies are controlled.
