Henry and Luzynczyk Successfully Defend General Surgeon
Pretzel & Stouffer partners Brian Henry and Sommer Luzynczyk successfully defended a general surgeon who performed surgery on a 51 year old male who had a large tumor in his colon. The plaintiff alleged that the surgeon performed the wrong surgery, failed to diagnose a leak of the anastomosis, and failed to re-operate. The patient developed sepsis, hypoperfusion to his brain and permanent brain damage. As a result, his supportive care was stopped and he passed away.
