On 04/22/16, the plaintiff underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed by Joseph M. Armotrading MD; the operation was complicated due to plaintiff's dense acute and chronic adhesions of gallbladder to liver bed. At the conclusion of the surgery, a drain was placed in the operative field and she was discharged. On 06/02/16, plaintiff underwent an exploratory laparatomy where a second surgeon performed an open Roux-en-Y hepatojejunostomy.The plaintiffs allege that Dr. Armotrading failed to take adequate precautions to identify the cystic duct during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, Dr. Armotrading had peer support that opined that due to the preexisting chronic adhesions, the outcome was a known complication.
