Horrific experience. Dr Hudgins falsely accused my husband and I of child abuse and subsequently performed an unneccary brain surgery on our infant son.

My son saw Dr. Hudgins in 2012 for Hydrocephalus. Dr. Hudgins did a VP Shunt Revision and left hair inside the cranial. Did not attach the catheter to the shunt so there was no where for the cranial fluid to go except to pool on the outside of the head. Did not clean up the scar tissue where the catheter is supposed to be placed inside the brain. So he had to shove the catheter in. Ended up at Cedar-Sinai in Los Angeles. Was in ICU for a month because of infection. Had 6 surgeries during stay.
