HOUSTON – John Seguin of Brazoria County has filed a medical malpractice suit against Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital and Dr. Rajan Kadakia, alleging the defendants improperly treated him following a procedure more than a year ago.
The nine-page complaint, filed March 19 in Harris County District Court, alleges Kadakia performed a left femoral popliteal angioplasty on Seguin at Memorial Hermann Pearland. The plaintiff “began to feel weaker and weaker” while waiting in the office post-procedure, the original petition says.
Seguin alleges “far too much time elapsed” before he was finally seen by the doctor. His blood pressure was finally checked and found to be low, the suit says.
The plaintiff says he was taken to Memorial Hermann Memorial City, where he had to be resuscitated.
“When revived, Seguin was diagnosed with a femoral artery lesion,” court documents say. “The result was Seguin had an extended hospital stay suffering from renal failure, severe encephalopathy and an ischemic colon.”
Seguin says that the ordeal has caused him to wear a colostomy bag “for the rest of his life.”
He seeks monetary damages and is represented by Mestemaker, Straub & Zumwalt of Houston. .
