CGP obtained summary judgment on behalf of a podiatrist in Bronx County Supreme Court. Plaintiff alleged that the defendant podiatrists improperly performed an ankle surgery on the plaintiff’s osteochondral defect (OCD) and tendon injury which resulted in recurrence of the OCD, the need for subsequent surgeries, and permanent pain and limited motion of the foot and ankle. There was a disagreement as to which defendant podiatrist performed the foot surgery on the plaintiff, and the plaintiff claimed that neither podiatrist was qualified to perform the surgery and it was performed improperly. In support of our motion, our podiatric expert opined that our podiatrist was qualified and that the surgery was properly performed regardless of who performed it. The Court found that plaintiff’s expert failed to establish that our podiatrist was unqualified and failed to establish the surgery was improperly performed. The case was handled by Michele R. Levin and Alexandra Nieto.
