Does a Doctor Performing an Unnecessary Procedure Warrant a Medical Malpractice Suit?

In some cases, a single physician may face multiple allegations of medical malpractice. Watch this video to see how one negligent doctor inflicted medical injuries on multiple patients throughout the tri-state area.

Several patients filed suits against a single physician after reportedly having unnecessary surgeries. One patient had spinal surgery as an infant that left him with chronic pain and prohibited him from following his lifelong dream to join the Marines. Another patient maintains that the doctor warned her that she would face paralysis or death without a surgery that other physicians deemed unnecessary.
