ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis man alleges a physician improperly placed a pain pump in his body.
Louis Wieneke filed a complaint on March 30 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Gorpeet Padda MD and Interventional Center for Pain Management alleging medical malpractice.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he had a pain pump surgically inserted by defendants through their agents, servants and employees. The suit states another doctor later determined that the pain pump was not implanted correctly and was poorly placed in the plaintiff's body.
The plaintiff holds Padda and Interventional Center for Pain Management responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly place and/or anchor the pain pump and failed to properly assess and correct his medical problems.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages of more than $25,000, punitive damages, costs of court and all other relief that are just and proper. He is represented by James J. Rosemergy of Carey, Danis & Lowe in St. Louis.
