David A. Axelrod & Associates Files Complaint for Battery and Fraud Against Preeminent Urologist, Robert B. Nadler and Northwestern Memorial Hospital

David A. Axelrod & Associates, P.C. announced that it has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Mary Bart (Springfield, Ill.) against Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation Inc, Robert B. Nadler, M.D., and David Rebuck, M.D. Bart is represented by attorney David A. Axelrod, senior partner at the law firm, and attorney Jason M. Kleinman. The complaint, filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, alleges that Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, and Robert B. Nadler, M.D. fraudulently induced Mary Bart to have a laser lithotripsy for her kidney stone extraction, thus leading to battery by David Rebuck, M.D. According to the Complaint, due to the renowned reputation and experience of Dr. Nadler as an urologist, Bart signed a consent form which required that Dr. Nadler himself perform the surgery to remove her kidney stones. However, the Complaint states that Dr. Nadler did not even scrub in for the procedure, which was performed by David Rebuck, M.D. Post-operatively, Bart became septic, leading to a series of dire medical issues, including respiratory failure, hypoxemia, aspiration pneumonia and septic shock. Bart remained hospitalized at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for more than three weeks, until she was transferred to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago for further treatment of her sepsis. The complaint further states, that as a direct and proximate result of Dr. Nadler's fraudulent inducement, which in turn led to battery by Dr. Rebuck, who performed the procedure without the consent of Bart, permanent injuries were suffered. Furthermore, the Complaint states that, on information and belief, Northwestern Memorial Hospital was aware that Dr. Nadler "often" permitted other doctors (fellows and residents) to perform surgical procedures on patients, who believed that Dr. Nadler was going to perform their surgery. Additionally, the Complaint alleges medical negligence and lack of informed consent.
