Case Results

Tsakonas v. Lakeshore Surgery Center and Stamelos, MD

Verdict: $1,500,000

The plaintiff, age 44, underwent laser spine surgery to her low back for a bulging disc and right posterior leg pain which resulted in a new neuropathic pain syndrome. The plaintiff attorney Kurt Lloyd alleged that defendant Lakeshore Surgery Center negligently granted surgical privileges to an orthopedic surgeon to perform laser spine disc decompression surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center, when the surgeon did not hold hospital equivalent privileges or current credentialing for laser spine surgery.

The plaintiff's attorney Kurt Lloyd found and retained the orthopedic surgeon who had perfected the laser spine procedure and trained the majority of orthopedic surgeons in laser spine surgery techniques.
