    I had open heart surgery, but the valve was still leaking

    I had open heart surgery in February 2012, however the valve in my heart was still leaking. I had to have 3 other surgeries to correct this problem. Can I sue the original doctor for malpractice?

    If you can prove negligence, then you have a case. Please read more about proving medical malpractice here.
