Neurosurgeons Sued For Alleged Malpractice On Child’s Surgery
The parents of 5-year-old Katie have sued North Shore University Hospital and their star neurosurgeons for a spine operation that left the child unable to touch her toes, walk upstairs, and in constant pain.
The parents allege the surgery was unnecessary, reports the NY Daily News.
Before the surgery, which the surgeons claimed would help alleviate a rare brain defect known as Chiari Malformation, Katie was happy and active, riding her two wheeler and playing soccer, the parents alleged.
Katie’s parents are among at least four other families suing Doctors Thomas Milhorat and Paolo Bolognese for alleged unnecessary surgeries that inflicted further harm to the patients, according to the newspaper.
