BRET HART SUING DOCTOR OVER ALLEGEDLY BOTCHED SURGERY

By Mike Johnson on 2017-12-05 21:27:00

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart worked most of his career with a wrist injury and after retiring, attempted to have surgery to repair the issue.  The surgery, however, left the former WWF and WCW World champion unable to use his right index finger and thumb, according to a $1 million lawsuit Hart has filed against plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Yeung.

The issue is one that has hampered Hart in recent years, making it unable for him to dress himself and take part in recreation activities, including being able to draw.

Hart's lawsuit is alleging that Yeung, who told Hart he could fix the issue via partial fusion of the wrist bones instead left Hart without functional use of the fingers following a 2015 surgery.  Hart's lawsuit alleges that Yeung and his team left “a tourniquet on Mr. Hart’s right arm on too long, such that the circulation of the nerves and tendons to his right thumb and index finger were damaged by a prolonged insufficient supply of oxygen.”
