He does not submit adverse events when a knee implant he is the consultant for fails. One would hope as a paid consultant to Stryker Dr levitt would make sure he cites failures as well as successes. So sad he and Stryker representative Jack Jieafa as well as doctors hospital failed to report mandatory adverse knee events. They should both be charged criminally as they broke the law.
