Patient Claims Dr. Adams Sponged Off Her

11/13/2007 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another patient of Dr. Jan Adams sued him for malpractice, alleging he left a foreign object in her body.

In a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Lori Ufondu claims that in 1996, she underwent breast augmentation by Dr. Adams. In 2003, she underwent revision surgery by another doctor, who discovered that a surgical sponge was left, she claims by Dr. Adams.

Ufondu claims the sponge and its belated removal caused a distortion in her appearance, creating a deformed right nipple, a puncture wound, loss of sensation and "horrific scar tissue."

Following Dr. Adams' surgery, Ufondu claims she was feeling "sharp, needle-like pain in the area of this scar tissue." She says she complained to Dr. Adams, who allegedly responded "by laughing in a derisory fashion, claiming that the pain would subside."

Ufondu obtained a judgment in excess of $100,000. Her lawyer tells TMZ the doctor has not paid, and he's trying to enforce the judgment. Her lawyer adds that there are several outstanding judgments against Dr. Adams, who has ignored his obligation to pay.

Insurance will pay for it if: 1. He has it. 2. If he files a claim with them. I used to work for a plastic surgeon for one year who had numerous complaints and rather than allowing the client to file a lawsuit or let the Board of Plastic Surgeons know about the incident, he would immediately pay them out of his own pocket. He's probably screwed up so many patients he doesn't want to file any more with his malpractice insurance, again if he has it. If one is going to have any kind of surgery, find out about your doctor first. You can go to the library and ask them to show you the book that pertains information about doctors that have had their licenses removed, then reinstated, etc. I forget the name of the book though.

I cannot believe the stupidity of the person that made the affirmative action comment. I do not usually give stupid people the courtesy of a response. However in this case I must say that if medical malpractice is a barometer by which to measure the result of affirmative action, then White Americans must have also benefited from affirmative action. If P then Q......

Too bad it took someone "famous" being harmed by this doctor for his rotten record to be brought to the attention of the public.

Someone at TMZ has obviously decided to go after this guy all guns blazing.

Even Twitney doesn't get this many stories.

This doctor does not have malpractice insurance. He does not keep money in his name. Nothing is in his name. It's like getting blood from a stone(no pun intended). He needs his credentials to practice to be revoked.

...the doctor who first refused her until she saw a specialist in regards to her heart condition is on LK tonite.

He look like a more evil version of Montel Williams - maybe it was a new type of black ritual to cosmetic surgery torture the sisters?

PS - this often happens when low IQ low class Democrats get together - madness & mayhem ensues - a true rap & hip hop tradgedy. Go Kanye - sue the SOB $1T.
