Hans Poppe of The Poppe Law Firm and London, Kentucky attorney Gary Hudson have filed suit against a number of medical providers for performing unnecessary stenting, catheterizations and other unnecessary heart procedures. You can see the Complaint here
. The suit alleges CATHOLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES, INC., SAINT JOSEPH HEALTH SYSTEM, INC., SAINT JOSEPH-LONDON, PREMIER HEART AND VASCULAR CENTER, CARDIOVASULAR SPECIALISTS OF THE CUMBERLANDS, PLLC, THE MEDICAL SPECIALISTS OF KENTUCKY, P.S.C, MANAGEMENT SERVICE ORGANIZATION OF KENTUCKY, INC., M.S.O. OF KENTUCKY, INC., SATYABRATA CHATTERJEE, M.D., SANDESH PATIL M.D., and ANIS CHALHOUB M.D. were all involved in scheme to profit by perfoming unnecessary stenting and other heart procedures on patients.
Recently, Saint Josephs agreed to pay the federal government $22 million dollars to resolve similar claims
arising out of unnecessary stenting procedures at a facility in Towson, Maryland. The money was paid to resovle claims by the federal goverment that the facility engaged in and profited from improper and unnecessary cardiac stenting procedures performed by Dr. Mark Midei, a cardiologist at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, MD. Dr. Midei lost his license to practice medicine.
I'd like to know what you think about doctors performing unnecessary heart surgery on patients that don't need it.
