I-Flow Pain Pumps for Feet
San Diego I-Flow Pain Pump Lawsuit Attorney
Foot Injury Surgery Lawyer
The I-Flow pain pump was designed to administer pain medication into an affected area following surgery. It is designed for use primarily on the shoulders, knees, and hips. However, doctors have started administering the device on the feet after foot surgeries.
The administration of pain medication to the feet or toes can cause dangerous complications. Administering too much medication into the foot can cause holes to form, damaging skin and tissue. If a doctor makes the decision to administer an I-Flow pain pump into the foot — which may not be a good medical decision — he or she must take great care in determining the volume and flow rate of the medication.
If you or someone close to you has been injured after using an I-Flow pain pump device, you deserve to learn about your legal options. I am attorney Scott S. Harris, and I represent medical malpractice and defective medical device injury victims throughout Southern California.

Pain Pump-Induced Injuries
I-Flow pain pumps are designed to infuse pain medication into affected areas. Patients can administer the medication themselves, as the device is designed for patient use. However, if the device is improperly programmed, too much medication can enter the affected area and damage the surrounding skin and tissue. If too much medication is administered to the affected area and fluid builds up, serious injuries can result:
- Tissue damage
- Skin damage
- Cartilage deterioration
- Joint damage
