“This story will seriously make you question whether or not to rely on medical advice handed out online. Dr. Spryos Panos, who claims to be one of the most skilled orthopedic surgeons in America, is facing 122 medical malpractice lawsuits. He even offers advice in online forums relating to orthopedic topics, ranging from caring for joints to if and when surgery may be required as a result of sports injuries,” explained Christopher Mellino, a Cleveland medical malpractice lawyer of Mellino Robenalt LLC, in Ohio.

Anyone finding out the man has 122 medical malpractice lawsuits pending would likely run far and fast in the opposite direction. It is an obvious misstatement by the doctor that he is one of the most skilled surgeons in America. If that is the case, there would certainly not be 122 lawsuits pending against him.

“Dr. Panos is currently under criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, but he has not yet been charged with a criminal offense, although that state of affairs may change over time. Former patients alleged he performed fraudulent operations and intentionally did not treat or improperly treated patients’ injuries. Once the first accusation was made, the floodgates of litigation opened, with lawsuits being filed monthly,” Mellino added.

These cases will take years before they are heard in court, and the paperwork in cases like this is phenomenal. This is just the tip of the iceberg, in a case that involves a federal grand jury and all the secrecy that goes with their investigation. “The thing that worries the patients and plaintiff’s lawyers is that the doctor appears to still be practicing, allegedly somewhere in New York City, although no signs of him have been found to date. He continues to be active on blogs, Facebook and Twitter and offers advice, seemingly with near complete immunity. For justice to be served, he will need to be brought to court to face his accusers,” stated Mellino.

Not all medical malpractice suits are like this one. Each suit is different, just as each victim is different and suffers different injuries and outcomes. The only way to receive justice in situations involving medical negligence is to reach out to a well respected and noted medical malpractice lawyer, one with a substantive track record in dealing with medical negligence.
