A woman claiming a doctor somehow botched her surgery has filed suit against the physician and his employer.

Lisa Moseley filed suit against Dr. Darioush Kavouspour and Surgical Critical Care Associates on Feb. 1 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Oct. 6, 2009, Dr. Kavouspour operated on Moseley at St. Elizabeth Christus Hospital in Beaumont.

However, the suit does not state what operation he preformed or why she had been admitted.

The suit only says that when the case is tried the evidence will show "Moseley continues to suffer as a result of medical negligence."

The suit does not list a specific act of negligence allegedly committed by Dr. Kavouspour.

Moseley is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

Houston attorney Craig Lewis represents her.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. D189-292
