  • Neurosurgical Malpractice – Nerve Damage from Negligently Performed Lumbar Fusion: Estlow v. Greater Michigan Spine & Neurologic Institute, et al.

Sommers Schwartz attorney Matthew Turner filed suit on behalf of a woman claiming to be permanently injured as the result of a negligently performed spinal surgery. The plaintiff underwent a posterior lumbar fusion procedure and alleges that the defendant surgeon placed excessive bone graft material in the neural foramen in at least two spinal levels, causing severe stenosis, lower extremity radiculopathy, and back pain. She was forced to then have a subsequent revision surgery to remove the particulate matter and decompress the nerve roots. The plaintiff claims that had the defendant properly performed the lumbar fusion operation, she would not have incurred extensive pain, suffering, prolonged hospitalization, medical expenses, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and other damages. The medical malpractice action is pending in Calhoun County, Michigan Circuit Court.
