Troy Lundquist and Anastasia Hess represented two gynecologists in a medical malpractice case. Plaintiff presented to the Doctor for complaints of severe left-sided pain. Based on the physical examination and imaging studies, the Plaintiff was diagnosed with a multi-septated mass on her ovary. The gynecologists performed a laparoscopic surgery to remove the cyst, and because they could not visualize the mass due to adhesions, the procedure was converted the laparoscopy when enterotomy occurred. Because an enterotomy is a known risk of the procedure, Plaintiff contended that the surgery should not have been performed. The defense argued that the surgery was indicated due to Plaintiff’s pain complaints as well as to confirm that the cyst was not cancerous. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the Doctor.
