Iowa Woman Gets Wrong Organ Removed
An Iowa woman is suing and expect her to clean up.
Dena Knapp of MIlford is suing because Dr. Scott Baker and the Surgical Institute of South Dakota, P.C. for removing her healthy right kidney instead of her adrenal glad.
Six days after the surgery, the doctors told her that the infected mass on her adrenal glad was still there and a second surgery was needed to be done. Knapp claims in the surgery claim, that Baker failed to remove the infected mass and removed her kidney. Knapp went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to get the affected mass removed.
The claim says that Knapp has incurred expenses in access of $96,000 and has lost $42,000 worth of earns so far. So even a settlement claim would be quite the take for Knapp.
