Urgent Message to All Advanced Orthopaedic Patients

Dear Patients,

We know that many of you have heard the news regarding the multi-state meningitis outbreak. The CDC has coordinated an investigation of fungal meningitis among patients who received an epidural steroid injection. The investigation has shown that these infected patients received potentially contaminated steroid medication prepared by New England Compounding Center, located in Framingham, Massachusetts.

We want to reassure you that the steroid we utilize in our practice is NOT from a compounding pharmacy. The steroid medication we use is manufactured by a pharmaceutical company, not a compounding pharmacy.

Your safety and the quality of your treatment here at AO is our primary concern. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 804 672 9101 ext. 8000.

Sincerely,
The Physicians of Advanced Orthopaedics
