    • Settlement  (2/23/2015)
    • Nature of Complaint: INCIDENT LOCATION: GOLDSBORO, NC /// PRACTITIONER COMMENTS: Allegations of negligence by failing to initially operate on the intended cervical disc levels of C3-C4 and C6-C7 and instead performing anterior cervical discectomies, osteophytectomies and decompression of spinal canal with anterior body fusions at C4-C5 and C7-T1 and then having to perform same surgeries at the intended levels of C3-C4 and C6-C7. Further allegations that unintended surgery at C4-C5 and C6-T1 was a proximate cause the patient's injury to his cervical spine (four-level surgery versus two-level surgery) and injury to his right vocal cord which consists of prolonged hoarseness from recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy on the right.
