Surgeon Implant Usage

The SF-DCT is developing a list of physicians who have submitted acceptable affidavits or affirmative statements that show they used Dow Corning implants during certain years, in order to assist claimants who have been unable to establish the manufacturer of their implants.

If you submit medical records that show you had implant surgery performed by one of the physicians on this list, during the time frame(s) listed, you may submit these documents to the SF-DCT for consideration.

Medical records that may be considered include operative reports or operative physician notes. The SF-DCT may be able to consider other types of records. If records, other than an operative report or operative physician notes are submitted, we will need a statement from you that describes the steps taken to find the operative report or operative notes. We will also need copies of any records that connect you to the surgeon/physician during the specified time frame. Examples of other records that may identify who your surgeon was include, but are not limited to, cancelled checks, insurance claim letters, and hospital or day surgery admission forms.

The preparation of this list is an ongoing activity and the list can be updated at any time. We therefore recommend that you check frequently for changes. Please note that if conflicting information is found for any listed physician, the physician's name could be removed from the list.

The following are physicians who have submitted acceptable affirmative statements or affidavits that show they used Dow Corning Breast Implants during the time frame listed below.
