A patient is alleging medical malpractice on the part of Lincoln Surgical Associates Ltd. and Dr. Vidya Shankran. The patient underwent a leg surgery, known as a medial gastrocnemius flap. He contends that as a result of a lack of denervation of the flap and a lack of post-surgical care that was appropriate, he suffered permanent injury, extensive pain, a loss of enjoyment of life, and the requirement for multiple surgeries to repair the damage.
According to the patient, Andrew Dahm, doctors at the hospital failed to perform the appropriate care after his surgery. He is also claiming that doctors did not perform the procedure correctly. As a result, Dahm is suffering with disabling injuries and is seeking more than $50,000 from each defendant. Dahm is also seeking to be compensated for the costs of the lawsuit.
Like any other patient, Dahm had the expectation that his surgery would be performed correctly and that he would awake with less pain, not more. No person expects to be disabled due to a surgery, nor should they. When a surgeon or doctor makes a mistake, the should be held liable for the injuries and suffering they cause.
