$5 Million Cervical Spine Surgical Medical Malpractice Case

Patient suffers catastrophic thromboembolic stroke secondary to cervical spine surgery. This matter handled by John Baldante involved a 45-year-old woman who underwent cervical spine surgery at the recommendation of her treating orthopaedic surgeon despite the fact that she did not present with signs and/or symptoms of cervical myelopathy. During the surgery, the patient suffered a catastrophic thromboembolic event to the vertebral-basilar artery resulting in an infarct to the pontine of the brain and manifesting in a profound Locked-In Syndrome. The client’s condition left her a partial spastic quadriplegic dependent upon others to perform most aspects of her activities of daily living (ADL’s).
