NY Surgeon at Center of 250 Lawsuits Still Licensed

An orthopedic surgeon in New York is still licensed to operate in the state even though he is currently at the center of at least 250 medical malpractice and negligence lawsuits, according to Outpatient Surgery. 

Spyros Panos, MD, who practiced in suburban Dutchess County, is being accused of fraudulent, unnecessary or excessive procedures and is said to have scheduled as many as 22 surgeries in a day. He has reportedly failed to adequately cement joint replacement components, implanted incorrect components and carried out an unneeded rotator cuff repair while ignoring a fractured clavicle.

In one horrible instance, Panos noted surgical details of an arthritic knee repair of a patient who died less than 24 hours after the procedure. The examiner's report showed that these treatments never actually took place.

"He put her under anesthesia, placed the scope in her knee and then closed her up without performing any surgery," said an attorney for the patient's family. "The reports showed no hardware in place and, certainly, no evidence of a total knee reconstruction." Read the full story here:
