FOX: Doctor wrongly removed kidney during botched procedure, lawsuit claims.
An Iowa woman is suing her South Dakota doctor and his practice after she claims she went in for a procedure to remove a mass on her adrenal gland and came out still with the mass inside of her — and missing a healthy kidney.
Dena Knapp, who said the 2016 procedure has left her with progressive kidney disease in her remaining kidney, also said she suffers from pain, fatigue, depression and mental distress as a result of the error.
According to Knapp’s lawsuit, Dr. Scott Baker, who performed the procedure, was informed by the pathology department at Avera McKennan Hospital that he had removed her kidney on Oct. 5, 2016, not the mass. more
