Attorney a defense verdict on behalf of a defendant obstetrician in a case involving allegations that defendant failed to obtain informed consent for plaintiff's tubal sterilization procedure and that defendant physician deviated from accepted standards of care by failing to cauterize the left fallopian tube. The defense position was that plaintiff was provided with full informed consent prior to the tubal sterilization surgery and that defendant obstetrician did, in fact, cauterize both fallopian tubes. Plaintiff's subsequent pregnancy following her tubal sterilization procedure was an unanticipated outcome due to recanalization of the left fallopian tube.
