During surgery Dr Hicks removed 4 inches of my ureter in error, which eventually led to a permanent ileostomy and substantial kidney damage. I was released to return to another city with instructions to "find a urologist to change my nephrostomy tube every 4 weeks", and to schedule a follow up with Dr Hicks in 3 months. Thanks to my urologist who insisted that Oschner make it right, another Oschner physician was able to fashion a new ureter from a portion of my bladder. Hicks offered no apology
