More Indiana Medical Malpractice Claims Filed Against Cardiologist

May 20, 2015 | Medical Malpractice

In Indiana, medical professionals have a legal and ethical responsibility to properly diagnose and treat a patient’s condition. The Indianapolis medical malpractice lawyers at Stewart & Stewart Attorneys point out that, despite this obligation, some physicians perform unnecessary medical procedures on patients.

One doctor being accused of such a practice is an Indiana cardiologist named Dr. Arvind Ghandi. More than 200 patients have accused Dr. Ghandi of performing unnecessary surgeries on their bodies. The latest of those claims was filed by the family of a man who underwent a medical procedure to implant a pacemaker that they may not have needed.

According to ABC 6 News, the Hamilton County family is accusing the doctor of performing unnecessary surgery on their loved one—and they claim the doctor was not qualified to be performing the surgery in the first place.

This isn’t the first time the doctor has faced such accusations either. Last year, dozens of similar Indiana medical malpractice lawsuits were filed against him.

The doctor has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal, claiming the lawsuits wrongfully portray his abilities as a doctor.

At Stewart & Stewart Attorneys, our Indianapolis personal injury lawyers are hopeful a decision in the case will bring a sense of closure to each of the victims who may have been harmed by this doctor’s actions.
