Orthopedic Surgery Expert Witness Testifies In First of 100s of Malpractice Suits

A Cincinnati attorney  won the medical malpractice case against Dr. Abubakar Durrani in Hamilton County, OH.  Dr. Durrani was found guilty of performing an unnecessary operation on a patient and Deters says it is the first of hundreds of lawsuits he is filing against the spine surgeon.  Dr. Durrani is now missing but Deters believes Durrani himself or his insurance company will pay damages.

An orthopedic surgery expert witness testified for the plaintiff.  The expert is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in the treatment of defects and diseases of the spine as well as treatment of sports injuries and work-related injuries of the spine. The jury heard descriptions of Dr. Durrani performing spine surgery improperly as well as a second surgery too soon following the first. The government has also charged Dr. Durrani with millions of dollars in false charges to insurance companies.
