Gemma Kenney Secures Defense Verdict

On December 17, 2019, Gemma Kenney obtained a defense verdict on behalf of an orthopedic surgeon following a two week medical malpractice trial in Suffolk County Supreme Court. Plaintiff alleged the defendant surgeon negligently performed a total knee replacement procedure, injuring her medial collateral ligament and resulting in the need for a revision surgery. The patient claimed pain and suffering for a period of approximately three years, which was the time period between the surgeries. Ms. Kenney successfully demonstrated that the surgery was performed appropriately and that the revision surgery was necessitated by a separate fall, not the surgical technique.
