A distinguished college professor has been left with crippling pain because the surgeon and the hospital operating staff who removed a malignant mass in her kidney left a laparoscopic pad inside her body. After surgery, she visited the surgeon because she was having severe abdominal pain; the surgeon dismissed it as nothing. When the patient sought a second opinion, a CT scan revealed that the surgeon had left a laparoscopic pad in her body. She had it fully removed, but suffered a great deal of pain affecting her ability to work. The plaintiff was represented by Jeffrey A. Milman, Esq. and Jason M. Caruso, Esq. of Hodes Milman, LLP, and was settled for $350,000, each defendant paying $175,000.
