MEDICAL MALPRACTICE a woman who suffered a permanent injury after undergoing a knee operation was awarded $3.5 million by a Pennsylvania jury on March 20. Mary Boyer, 63, saw orthopedic surgeon Jonathan Garino for right-knee pain in 1998. Garino diagnosed her with degenerative arthritis and performed a total knee replacement. Boyer was then sent to Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital in Malvern, Pa., where Dr. Jeffrey M. Friedman treated her. During physical therapy, she heard a pop in her right knee. A subsequent surgery revealed a torn ligament. She sued Garino, Friedman and several hospital entities. Only Friedman was found liable. A high-low agreement limits the verdict amount to $2.4 million. Boyer v. Garino, No. Nov. 2000-2195 (Philadelphia Co., Pa., Ct. C.P.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEY: Francis T. Colleran, Law Offices of James E. Colleran Jr., Philadelphia DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: William D. Dienna, Masterson, Braunfeld & Milner, Norristown, Pa.; Adrian King, Post & Schell, Philadelphia Source: National Jury Verdict Reporter
