Non-disclosure probe

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Spine surgeon Jeffrey Wang has been removed from his role as co-executive director of the University of California, Los Angeles Comprehensive Spine Center, while an independent committee at the UCLA medical school conducts an internal investigation into Wang's failure to disclose consulting fees and stock option arrangements with device firms including Johnson & Johnson/DePuy Spine, Medtronic and Facet Solutions. The committee will determine if the conflicts of interest interfered with research and what "mitigating actions" are needed. UCLA also responded to inquiries about the non-disclosures from Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, co-author of the Physician Payments Sunshine Act
