Under the settlement with DePuy Synthes announced Friday, the company accepts responsibility for giving the surgeon instruments for spine surgeries in the Middle East that were intended to induce the surgeon to use the company’s products in spine surgeries performed on Medicare and Medicaid patients in Massachusetts.
