Netflix Documentary ‘The Bleeding Edge’ Exposes Dangerous Medical Devices

| Read Time: 2 minutes

From birth-control devices to hip implants, the majority of medical devices hit the market without proper testing. Sometimes these untested devices, meant to improve lives, ruin them instead. Pharmaceutical and medical device companies make billions. Patients often pay with their health.

These are the horrors exposed in the terrifying new documentary “The Bleeding Edge.” The film, which releases July 27 on Netflix, examines the pitfalls of a $400 billion medical device industry responsible for products that have wreaked havoc on the lives of thousands.

The documentary specifically highlights issues associated with five medical device products that caused damage to the public, such as hip implants and vaginal mesh. One of these devices, the controversial Essure® birth control, was recently discontinued by pharmaceutical giant Bayer.


Our experienced team of professionals at Cory Watson Attorneys has been accepting Essure cases for more than three years. We have seen first-hand the damage caused by dangerous medical devices such as Essure birth control and other dangerous drugs.

Essure is a surgical implant device used as a permanent form of birth control. The device consists of two metal coils inserted into the fallopian tubes. Essure prevents pregnancy as the coils provoke an inflammatory response and scar tissue grows around the devices. It is meant as a form of permanent birth control for women and takes several months to become effective.

According to the FDA, more than 10,000 injuries have been reported and 16,000 lawsuits filed since the product was approved in 2002. The procedure is not reversible, and in many cases, Essure’s placement leads to serious pain, injury, and infection.


It’s not every day that women have the opportunity to stand up to the pharmaceutical companies that hurt them — however, the time to take part in an Essure birth control lawsuit is limited.
