Troubles continue to mount for Regina Turner, the victim of a botched surgery at SSM St. Clare Health Center in Fenton, Missouri. Turner suffers from Cadasil Syndrome, a conditions that raises her risk of stroke. She went into the hospital in April 2013, for a surgery on the left side of her brain, with the hopes of reducing her stroke risk. To her dismay, the surgery was performed on the right side of her brain, causing a new host of problems, from garbled speech and problems with basic motor functions, like walking; she may be confined to a wheelchair for an indefinite time.
Dr. Armond Levy, the surgeon who performed her operation, will face no charges, in fact, he will face no recourse whatsoever for his negligence. Dr. Levy now runs St. Louis Neurosurgery LLC in Valley Park. While the investigation shall remain on file, the Missouri Board of Registration has closed the matter. Attorney Alvin Wolff Jr., Turner’s representative, doesn’t believe Dr. Levy should lose his license, but has expressed some distress over the boards decision to not seek any action against Dr. Levy. Despite the long lasting effects of medical malpractice, It is uncommon for doctors to be sanction in Missouri at all.
