Meniscus surgery in 11/11 was found to have not been performed complete which has led to additional fraying and tearing of the remaining 50% of the meniscus. Since the original surgeon had MRI in 5/12 showing this he said there was nothing wrong and he did not know why I continued to hurt. Finally after several Dr.s I was sent for an MRI in 01/2013 which reveled the same as 5/12 MRI. The surgeon said the first surgeon didn't trim the meniscus throughly enough and the only choice is a partial knee replacement. Also there is permanent neuromuscular damage that I am seeing another specialist for which is due to the blood supply being cut off from the quad during the first surgery. What are my recourses against the first surgeon for these permanent damages?
