This case involves a patient who underwent a cervical total disc arthroplasty and placement of a cervical implant device that was met with complications. Following the procedure, the patient experienced new-onset neurological damage due to the postoperative complications including worsening and deterioration of his original condition, with persistent foraminal narrowing by postoperative osteophyte production. Furthermore, the patient sustained severe nerve impingement at C5-6, spinal stenosis, spinal abscess formation, and pain in the neck and right upper extremity with a resultant sensory loss to the hand. The patient also sustained other serious iatrogenic injuries and damages, which included a dural tear and spinal fluid leak that required further surgery and repair. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant had only previously performed the procedure a few times, and did not have the requisite skill, experience, and expertise to safely perform the novel surgical technique.
