Brothers File Malpractice Suit Against Doctor and Hospital Following Transplant Surgery

Posted on Feb 10, 2010 9:40am PST

After experiencing complications following a transplant surgery, two brothers are suing both UMPC and the hospital's chief of transplantation for medical malpractice.

The brothers, 45-year-old Peter Cullen and 42-year-old Timothy Cullen, came to the hospital to undergo a liver transplant. Timothy Cullen served as a donor to his brother Peter who has been suffering from liver disease. In separate lawsuits, the brothers claim the hospital and Dr. Amadeo Marcos failed to fully disclose all of the dangers and risks associated with the surgery.

This isn't the first time patients experienced health complications following a transplant surgery performed by Dr. Marcos. A recent study examining Dr. Marcos' surgeries found that 66% of the 121 live donor transplant recipients he treated experienced some type of significant complication.

Both men, who are now suffering from complications due to the surgery, are seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
