Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Alleges Doctor Removed Wrong Ovary

A 45-year-old woman has filed a medical malpractice complaint against a gynecologist who allegedly removed the wrong ovary during surgery. The complaint also alleges that the doctor then tried to cover-up this surgical error. According to reports, the doctor diagnosed the victim with a mass on her right ovary and recommended surgery to remove the entire ovary to prevent future cancer. During surgery, the doctor mistakenly removed the left ovary and then fabricated that she did so because she discovered a cyst on this ovary. Tests revealed that this was not true and the lawsuit alleges the doctor tried to cover up her mistake by falsely recording the presence of the cyst.
