Summary Judgment won for Orthopedic Surgeon Regarding Postoperative DVT Prophylaxis

Mr. Sikoscow obtained summary judgment on behalf of an orthopedic surgeon whose patient developed DVT, a pulmonary embolism, and expired following a hip resurfacing procedure. An autopsy disclosed that the patient had genetic mutations, making him more prone to clotting. However, since this was not known to the orthopedic surgeon at the time of surgery, summary judgment was granted and the case dismissed.
