RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A federal judge has ruled that a retired Rapid City dentist must stop selling laser devices with the claim that they treat a large number of serious diseases and disorders.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken has issued a permanent injunction against Robert “Larry” Lytle, who has been selling the QLaser and other medical devices.

The Justice Department says Lytle has been distributing the devices with false and misleading claims, including that they treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and diabetes.

Lytle tells the Rapid City Journal that he plans to appeal. He says his medical devices are safe and helpful. He says he hasn’t had a written complaint in 17 years.
