Earlier last month in an Indiana court, two doctors were named as defendants in a series of medical malpractice actions brought by a number of former patients. According to a recent report by one local news agency, the two doctors were allegedly performing unnecessary procedures on their patients.
Evidently, a total of 28 lawsuits have been filed against the two doctors, as well as against the medical centers that employ them. Formal complaints have also been submitted to the Medical Licensing Board, as well as the Indiana Attorney General.
The two cardiologists named in the lawsuit allegedly performed unnecessary procedures on numerous patients. The claims against the doctors are numerous. However, a few of them are based on unnecessary pacemaker installation, unnecessary open-heart surgery, unnecessary angiograms, unnecessary stenting, and unnecessary cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implantation.
