Brian Henry and Kayla Condeni secure a defense verdict for orthopedic surgeon accused of negligently performing a total hip replacement

Brian Henry and Kayla Condeni successfully defended an orthopedic surgeon in a 1.5 week trial in Cook County. The orthopedic surgeon was accused of negligently overlengthening a patient’s leg when performing a total hip replacement. The plaintiff requested over $1 million in damages after claiming the patient could no longer work, was disfigured, and experiencing debilitating pain from the resultant leg length discrepancy. Brian and Kayla argued that the surgical approach was within the standard of care given the patient’s preexisting conditions and anatomy and that the alleged overlengthening was not the cause of the patient’s complaints. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defense.
