Since the Mexican American War when Nevada, California, Utah and Arizona were ceded to the United States, the West has been plagued by charlatans selling all manner of healing tonics and elixirs. The travelling medicine show came to small towns with hucksters selling cure-alls that were promised to rid the taker of arthritis, lice, eczema, hangovers and more. While some of the snake oil sold contained now-illicit drugs like cocaine, heroin or marijuana, most of the drugs were panaceas, which never cured the patient and possibly reduced symptoms due to placebo effects. While many modern Americans laugh at the thought of being taken by a travelling snake oil salesman, there are many in our midst who sell miracle claims even today. Sure, these miracle cures are not sold in rural towns at travelling road shows, instead today, they are prescribed by unscrupulous physicians not interested in healing, but instead separating the sick, infirm and desperate with their hard earned cash.

Modern-day snake oil salesmen use miracle drugs like human growth hormone, anabolic steroids and even stem cells to dupe their unwitting and often ill and desperate victims. While HGH, Steroids and Stem cells are purported to possessing miraculous healing qualities, their illegal nature necessitates their sale on the black market. When drugs are sold on the black market, the user can never be sure of what they are receiving is safe, effective or even as advertised. If you have been a victim of medical malpractice in Nevada, contact Benson and Bingham today.
In a recent case, a Henderson pediatrician has been accused of selling patients fraudulent stem cells. The 51-year old physician, Ralph Conti, bilked patients and investors of over $ 1 million for his stem cell treatments, treatments that were not tested on animals, licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration or with a control group. If you have been involved in a Clark County Medical malpractice case, Benson and Bingham can represent you.
