Hi My husband had a spinal back fusion done in 1999 - they used screws, rods etc. to weld his back together. In March of 2000, they found out the screw had broken - therefore the fusion is now broken. The thing is the screws and rods etc were all made out of Titanium - the strongest material around - used in the making of space ships, war ships and planes etc. This material is NOT supposed to break - yet it did. Could have had hairline crack in it when put in his body - does he stand a chance at the company who makes it being liable? Going for another surgery to remove the broken screws etc and replaced with new ones - any suggestions?
