Oklahoma orthopedic surgeon to pay $340K to settle kickback allegations 


Orthopedic surgeon Mark Stephen Wilson, MD, agreed to pay $342,750 to resolve allegations that he accepted illegal kickbacks from Brookhaven Specialty Pharmacy, according to a Feb. 15 news release from the U.S. attorney's office. 

Dr. Wilson, based in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, allegedly knowingly accepted significant payments from the pharmacy in exchange for recommending pain creams produced by the pharmacy. 

The pharmacy paid Dr. Wilson what were characterized as "medical director fees" based on an hourly rate, but the suit alleges the fees were kickback payments, a violation of the False Claims Act.
