In November 2011, Congressman Fitzpatrick joined a bipartisan group of representatives in expressing his disapproval to Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over a recommendation made by the United States Preventive Task Force (USPTF) on October 7, 2011.

Fitzpatrick Letter to Vice President Urges Power Morcellator Review in ‘Cancer Moonshot’ Initiative
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) Wednesday called on Vice President Joseph Biden to take action on reforming medical device review and monitoring processes as part of the Administration’s “Cancer Moonshot” initiative – specifically highlighting power morcellators.  “As part of the Cancer Moonshot, we have the chance to protect others from the harm caused by dangerous medical devices. In 2016 there will be an estimated 595,690 cancer deaths in the United States. We must guard against unsafe medical devices from contributing to those staggering statistics,” wrote Fitzpatrick. “While supporting the development of new devices to target cancer, we must ensure that the FDA is able to review, monitor, and quickly take action should those devices do harm. Unfortunately, we are too late for many women who, because of morcellation, were not given a fair chance to fight and beat their cancer. But we have a chance to protect others.” The complete letter is
Fitzpatrick Questions FDA About Essure Reporting
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) sent the following letter to the Food and Drug Administration Tuesday regarding dramatic changes in the reporting of adverse events caused by the medical device Essure: Dear Dr. Shuren, Information has been brought to my attention that shows a dramatic change in how Adverse Event Reports relating to the permanent sterilization device Essure were submitted to the FDA coinciding with the agency’s announcement that it was reviewing the safety of the device. As you know, when a manufacturer submits an Adverse Event Report to the FDA one of the data fields to be filled is “Reporter Occupation.” Examples of how that field can be coded by the manufacturer include “Physician,” “Health Professional,” “Nurse,” “Pharmacist,” “Paramedic,” “Risk Manager,” and “Other.” As it relates to Essure, from January 2002 through June 2015, the manufacturer of the device submitted nearly 600 Adverse Event Reports in whic

In addressing Meehan during the floor debate, Frelinghuysen said, “Our committee is certainly committed to working with him and
Fitzpatrick Statement on Orlando Terrorist Attack
LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8), chairman of the bipartisan Task Force to Combat Terrorism Financing, released the following statement regarding the terror attack in Orlando, Florida: “James Clapper warned that we must be prepared and vigilant for the possibility that ISIS will infiltrate our country.  As we continue to grieve and pray for those devastated by this attack, we must redouble our efforts and be clear in our resolve to protect our nation and her citizens from the radical Islamic terrorism that continues to target us. This fight must be carried out on multiple fronts: through diplomatic action, addressing terror financing and, when appropriate, the use of military force. We must never lose sight of the challenges we face nor the capacity, as Americans, to address them.” Speaker Paul Ryan ordered that flags at the U.S. Capitol be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims. ###
