A man in Boston is acting as his own lawyer arguing a malpractice suit
“He has accused Brigham and Women’s Hospital physicians Dr. John Ready and Dr. Thomas Simopoulos of going ahead with hip surgery on his 62-year-old mother, Leona, after her blood pressure dropped to a dangerously low point on Jan. 14, 2000. Leona Trabucco died on the operating table after efforts to resuscitate her failed . . .
. . . An emergency medical technician, Trabucco made news in 1999 when he went against accepted medical practices and treated his mother, who suffered from inoperable lung cancer, with ethyl alcohol. He said the treatment caused her tumors to shrink to the point where they were undetectable.”
