Woman alleges doc removed ovary without consent
Area resident Taryn Stevens has filed suit against Dr. Khalid Kayani and Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital, alleging one of her ovaries was removed during surgery without her consent.
The suit was filed April 3 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, on Jan. 26, 2010, Sr. Kayani performed a myomectomy on Stevens at Baptist Hospital to remove uterine fibroids.
"During the course of the procedure defendant Kayani removed plaintiff's left ovary ... without consent," the suit states.
The suit faults the defendants for negligently removing the ovary without consent.
Stevens is suing for her alleged past and future mental anguish, medical expenses and impairment.
Houston attorney Christopher Wilsher represents her.
Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.
