Numerous lawsuits are pending against the companies that manufacture, market or distribute post-operative pain pumps, including Stryker, DJO Inc., I-Flow Inc., BREG Inc., and others. A shoulder pain pump is a medical device implanted into the shoulder during arthroscopic surgery to alleviate post-operative shoulder joint pain. A shoulder pain pump works by infusing pain medication directly into the shoulder through a catheter continuously until post-operative pain subsides.

The pain pump lawsuits include many different claims. For example, the lawsuits allege that the manufacturers of shoulder pain pumps failed to instruct or warn the U.S. medical community that the safety of using the pain pumps in the shoulder joint had not been established. Additionally, the lawsuits claim that continuous injections of commonly used anesthetics (pain drugs) may cause permanent injury.
