Lisa Maria Carter went in for a routine procedure but left the hospital without her hands and feet. The doctor in the medical malpractice lawsuit took the stand in court Thursday and said the mistake that cost the woman her way of life was not his fault. Ms. Carter is suing Dr. Larry Glazerman, who was once part of the USF Medical Group. She seeks damages in the millions of dollars to pay for a lifetime of treatment and medical care.
In November of 2010, Ms. Carter was about to be deployed to Iraq when she went in for routine surgery at the Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida to remove an ovarian cyst. But according to Ms. Carter’s lawsuit, something went terribly wrong in the operating room. Her lawsuit claims Dr. Glazerman accidentally sliced through her small bowel and didn’t catch the mistake. The lawsuit claims that missed mistake led to a severe infection. Doctors had to amputate both her hands and feet and most of her lower legs.
