|Orthopedic Surgeon Gil Tepper Pleads Guilty. Agrees To A Plea Deal With The Los Angeles District Attorney.|
By Lonce Lamonte - February 20, 2019
Last week, orthopedic surgeon Gil Tepper, M.D., of Beverly Hills, pleaded guilty to two counts out of eleven counts charged against him under Labor Code Section 139.21 for workers’ compensation fraud. His plea agreement was approved on February 13, 2019 by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office.
For a period of nearly nine years, from 2006 to 2014, Gil Tepper’s Miracle Mile Medical Center feigned to purchase surgical hardware from a shell company created by Tepper and his partner-in-crime, Jorge Vital, called Metalink Distributors. In actuality, the hardware implants and medical devices they purchased and utilized were from FDA registered surgical hardware suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers. Metalink Distributors was never registered with the FDA as required by law.
