Sorry everyone. I accidently hit the send mail button before completing

this letter.

Thanks to everyone who responded. Before I proceed, I need to make clear

that I have deliberately not identified the provider or patient. This

occurred three years ago in a hospital located out of the geographic area

I provided services in. The provider is a credentialed orthotist. I know

nothing else about the provider that is appropriate for me to discuss.

About two years ago I reviewed the medical records from the hospital and

as best I can recall the IPOP was provided 2-3 days after surgery. I

reviewed this patients file from the provider’s office. It had no

clinical notes; just a copy of the bill to the hospital for an “IPOP”. I

also reviewed the excellent clinical records from this patients current

prosthetist. It made reference to the IPOP as an IPOP with iceross type

insert and pin lock. That is all I have to go on. The prosthesis is not

available and the current prosthetist does not wish to get involved

because of the possibility of affecting his referral sources. The

provider will be giving his deposition on August 28th. I am almost

certain I will have one or more depositions regarding this. Today I

received information regarding the use of Iceross inserts for edema

control post operatively and I am awaiting more information from Iceland

regarding clinical trials in France where Iceross inserts are used post
