OrthoTexas patients not at risk in steroid recall, meningitis outbreak

OrthoTexas Physicians and Surgeons, PLLC (“OrthoTexas”) wants to assure our patients that injectable steroid medications related to the national outbreak of fungal meningitis have not been used by any OrthoTexas physician. In addition, OrthoTexas has not purchased any medical products from the pharmacy linked to the meningitis outbreak.

OrthoTexas patients who have received epidural steroid injections for back and neck pain, and intra-articular joint injections for knees, hips, shoulders and other joints over the last few months are not at risk.
