About this facility:
Andrea B. sued Dr. Mohammad Momtaz for negligence and medical malpractice committed during a surgery he performed on her at Planned Parenthood of New York City on September 21, 2004. The lawsuit charges that Dr. Momtaz 'improperly handled the post-operative care of Plaintiff [Andrea B.] at Planned Parenthood, resulting in injuries, including but not limited to, a uterine perforation, need for surgical intervention, hematoma and a permanent left leg neuropathy.' Andrea was admitted to the emergency room that day, and required further treatment due to the injuries she sustained. Although the complaint does not specify the type of surgery at issue, uterine perforation is a known risk of improperly performed abortion.
