Surgeon Timothy Wetherill and Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center were named as defendants in two medical-negligence cases filed in state District Court this week.

In the first lawsuit, filed Tuesday, Janice Sabado of Santo Domingo Pueblo accused Wetherill of botching a laparoscopic surgery to remove her gall bladder on Sept. 10, 2009, at the hospital’s Physician Plaza Surgery Center. Wetherill placed clips that blocked the flow of bile from her liver to her small bowel, requiring her to have additional surgeries and possibly need a liver transplant, according to the complaint written by lawyers Scott Berg and Dan Shapiro of Albuquerque.

    Crusty's St. Victim's seems to hire docs with a history of malpractice. There's this guy and that neurosurgeon who seemed to have been sued out of Albq. then came here only to be sued again. Maybe they're considered a bargain.
