Plastic Surgeon Malpractice

This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Los Angeles, CA: (Nov-13-07) Several malpractice lawsuits were brought against Dr. Jan Adams, the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mother a day before she died. Sources claim that the surgeon has been in and out of trouble with the Medical Board of California over several DUI cases and has had judgments against him in at least two malpractice cases. Records show that Adams has multiple convictions for alcohol-related offenses, where he has been charged with violating the Medical Practice Act.

Legal counsel claimed that Adams has settled at least two malpractice suits, one for $250,000 and another for $217,000. The Los Angeles County Coroner's office said that Adams performed surgery on Donda West, 58. She was found unresponsive and in respiratory arrest at her home the following day and was pronounced dead that evening after being rushed to a nearby hospital. Sources stated that an autopsy on West's body was inconclusive and is pending the results of toxicology tests. [CNN NEWS: PLASTIC SURGEON MALPRACTICE]
