Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group Successfully Defends Neurosurgeon Against Negligence Accusation

Henry Fenton and Nick Jurkowitz successfully represented a neurosurgeon in a case before the Medical Board of California pertaining to an Accusation seeking revocation of the neurosurgeon’s medical license on the basis of alleged repeated acts of negligence. The case, involving several complex spine surgeries and a brain surgery, went to a full hearing, and the Accusation was dismissed. Quoting the Medical Board authorities from the decision, “The mere fact that there is a difference of medical opinion concerning the desirability of one particular medical procedure over another does not establish that the determination to use one of the procedures was negligent.”
