Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
Patient presented to insured with complaints of pain, tenderness and swelling of the right, first MPJ, which had been ongoing for many years.X-rays revealed degenerative joint disease and narrowing of the joint space for which surgery was performed on 06-22-09.Post-op, patient developed non-union of the surgery site, avascular necrosis, and pain at the second and third metatarsal due to transfer metatarsalgia.Patient claims the non-union caused her to undergo further surgery with another doctor.She alleges insured was negligent in performing a procedure that causes/aggravates arthritis and performing surgery without first attempting conservative care.Our expert stated patient developed a mal-union/non-union at the surgical site due to the development of avascular necrosis.He advised that avascular necrosis with attending mal-union/non-union is a common risk and complication of any surgical procedure.As to the conservative care, the longevity of patient¿s symptoms, along with increased findings on x-ray, warranted surgical intervention.Insured could have have, perhaps, continued to treat patient¿s symptoms non-surgically; however, patient would not have been able to resolve her symptoms completely without surgical intervention.
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Minor - Loss of fingers, loss or damage to organs.Includes non-disabling injuries.
