Illinois doctor seeks to dismiss medical malpractice lawsuit

An Illinois doctor seeks dismissal of a medical malpractice lawsuit filed against him. The lawsuit claims that the doctor perforated a patient’s bladder during a hysterectomy. The doctor’s motion to dismiss claims that a report by a reviewing health care professional was not filed on time.

According to the lawsuit, an outpatient hysterectomy and oophorectomy was performed on Tammy Sparks on October 11, 2012, at Protestant Memorial Medical Center in Belleville, Illinois. The complaint states that the doctor perforated the patient’s bladder and vesciovaginal fistula.

The lawsuit claims that as a result of the perforation, Sparks had to undergo multiple additional surgeries and suffered diminishing health as well as physical, mental and emotional anguish. The lawsuit further claims that Sparks experienced pain and discomfort, incurred medical costs, suffered depression and anxiety, lost her normal life and endured financial hardship.

The lawsuit alleges that the doctor was negligent in failing to treat the patient’s symptoms, contact appropriate specialists, complete examinations and workups, monitor the patient and have her properly tested.

The motion to dismiss claims that Sparks failed to attach a report by a reviewing health care professional to her complaint. Sparks filed the lawsuit pro se.

The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $150,000, plus costs and other relief.
