An Illinois man has filed a lawsuit against a doctor and the hospital in which he works because the man went blind after undergoing a spine surgery that the doctor performed.
The man, who was having bone fragments removed from the lumbar region of his spine, remained face-down for 250 minutes while the surgery was performed. He was found to be unresponsive immediately following the surgery and was not able to move his arms or see. While movement in his arms returned, he remained blind.
The man is seeking $50,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.
