Sorry, no etymologies found.
The settlement resolved a lawsuit filed by two former Kyphon employees under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. The suit alleged that Kyphon engaged in a seven-year marketing scheme that resulted in certain hospitals billing Medicare for kyphoplasties performed on an inpatient basis rather than for less costly and clinically appropriate outpatient kyphoplasty treatment.
He uses the system primarily for different interventions of the spine, e.g., for spinal radiofrequency ablations and for discographies or kyphoplasties.
