A Rolling Hills physician is one of eight doctors being sued for medical malpractice by a local woman who lost her arms and legs following complications from a recent surgery, the Daily Breeze reported.
Annette Ramirez, 48 lost portions of all four of her limbs following infections from a hysterectomy surgery at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in August, the newspaper reported.
Ramirez named Rolling Hills doctor James Scharffenberger, her primary physician, in the suit along with seven other doctors and the hospital, according to the Daily Breeze.
"She knows she's lost her arms and legs. She knows she's never going to be able to take care of her young children," Ramirez's attorney Bruce Fagel told reporter Larry Altman. "She's never going to be able to go back to work."
