PHILADELPHIA -- Ask a surgeon -- especially a bone man -- precisely what he does and it becomes apparent that he's mostly a craftsman, a mechanic."Yes, I'm a carpenter, stone mason and plasterer with a medical degree," orthopedic surgeon Dr. Marvin E. Steinberg says with a laugh.Hammers, saws, high-speed drills, chisels and screwdrivers are all tools of the trade in the hip replacement game.So it should be no big surprise that when Dr. Steinberg had an idea for a new surgical instrument, he visited hardware stores searching for something similar.

If an auto repair shop says it charges $70 an hour for labor, and the job takes one hour, how much is the labor bill? David Verdiner thought the answer should be $70 when he had his car fixed at a Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack Inc. garage in Los Angeles two years ago. The store had signs stating that its hourly labor rate was $70. But instead, Verdiner claims, he was billed $112 for the labor, even though the job took only 40 minutes. Verdiner paid his bill. But in October 2002 he sued Pep Boys for fraud and false advertising.
