Over 5 years ago, Panos Spyros was accused of over 256 medical malpractice cases in the realm of orthopedic surgery. He was released from Federal prison in March of 2017 for health care fraud after pleading guilty.
Panos was accused of mishandling surgeries and performing surgeries that were not needed. Pam Bisaccia, one victim of Panos’ surgeries, stated that after performing surgeries on her Achilles heel she is unable to walk.
She stated, “Shaving my legs feels like ripping my skin off… Each step feels like walking on hot coals.”
Panos was said to see on the upwards of 90 patients in a single day and performed 20 surgeries a day. Panos will still not admit to medical lawlessness as part of the possible $40 million settlement.
A point-based system has been created based on each individual claim has been created to establish how much damage had been done per patient. Each point being worth $2,500.
Panos’ fraudulent surgeries and medical care claims are being paid out by Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company and Healthcare Professionals Insurance Company.
