Exactech next in line for DoJ probe:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Exactech is the latest orthopaedic firm to feel the effects of a US crackdown on illegal payments to healthcare professionals. The Gainesville, Florida-based company received a subpoena from the US Department of Justice on December 12 requesting that it provide documents dating from 1998 that relate to agreements hat it has made with orthopaedic surgeons. Exactech said it intends to co-operate fully with the DoJ on this matter. The subpoena is part of a wider investigation under which the authorities have looked at several major orthopaedic companies' relationships with surgeons. Most recently, Wright Medical said that it was co-operating with the DoJ in connection with the same investigation (see Clinica No 1286, p 3).
