The Truth is...

Recent news coverage of the medical technology industry has irresponsibly claimed that medical devices are under-regulated and as a result pose an unacceptable risk to patients. This is false. The truth is, the medical technology industry is committed to safety, effectiveness and quality for all devices. Patient safety has always been and always will be our #1 priority. 

These stories obscure the overwhelmingly positive impact medical innovation has on millions of patients worldwide every day. See below for a series of fact checks which point out erroneous narratives, replacing them with the truth.
