He has a name that is known throughout the world of athletics – Dr. James Andrews. His surgeries have saved and revived the careers of thousands of athletes. Now, he is facing a lawsuit from Sharrif Floyd, a former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle.
The suit claims that Floyd “suffered permanent nerve and muscle damage in his leg as the result of a 2016 surgery performed at the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. Floyd said he was told he needed arthroscopic surgery but that the procedure went far beyond that scope. The lawsuit also claims that Floyd was “negligently administered a pain blocker,” which damaged his right leg.
He is seeking $180 million in damages.
