Patient Alert


 

GLOC medications are NOT from the lab implicated in the recent health concern.

To our Great Lakes Orthopaedic Center patients:

Our physicians and staff have fielded many questions recently by concerned patients about infections related to methylprednisolone corticosteroid injections.  The greatest health risk has centered on aspergillosis meningitis, resulting from epidural injections.  Great lakes orthopaedic center has never purchased medications from the supplier (new england compounding center) that has been implicated in this health concern.

If you are experiencing complications from an injection you have received you should contact the physician office which administered the injection for information and evaluation.
