Santa Fe doctor under fire for purchasing unapproved IUD devices

August 30th, 2015

A Santa Fe doctor is being investigated for allegedly purchasing intrauterine devices that were not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration from a Canadian website and failing to tell her patients. Doctor Barbara Van Eeckhout reportedly bought cheaper products that were marked as a Mirena IUD but in fact were not.

Van Eeckhout is not the first doctor to be accused of purchasing cheaper unapproved birth control devices and telling patients they are the Mirena device. Several patients have come forward alleging malpractice, along with injuries related to the IUD.

More than 45,000 Mirena IUD complaints were filed with the FDA from 2007 to 2012, raising concerns about the safety of the device. Thousands of Mirena lawsuits have been filed alleging that the birth control caused severe side effects, including serious pain, internal bleeding and tissue damage when the device perforates the uterus and travels through the body.
