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.
