Defendant seeks to compel discovery in med-mal over ovary removal

A medical malpractice defendant is seeking to compel the plaintiff to respond to its discovery requests. 

Last April, Taryn Stevens filed suit against Dr. Khalid Kayani and Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital, alleging one of her ovaries was removed during surgery without her consent.

Court records show that Dr. Kayani’s motion to compel was filed June 17 and seeks to compel the plaintiff to respons to his first set of interrogatories and requests for production.

The lawsuit alleges that on Jan. 26, 2010, Dr. 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.

Dr. Kayani is represented by Gregory Myers, attorney for the Houston law firm Myers Doyle.

Case No. A192-264
