A man who allegedly was injured during surgery at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady has filed a lawsuit against the hospital and the doctor who performed the surgery.

James Dutcher, III of Schenectady alleges that Dr. Robert McKay was negligent when he performed a laparosopic cholecystomy – removal of the gall bladder – in January 2012, causing permanent injuries that required further surgery.

The claim was filed by the law firm Martin, Harding & Mazzotti.  The defendants are represented by Thorn & Gershon of Albany.

This case is the first from Schenectady County to appear on this page. Details of more cases filed in the county will be published here in the coming weeks.
