Woman Files Cook County Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Claiming Doctor Sterilized Her


A Naperville woman is accusing an obstetrician-gynecologist at Rush-Copley Medical Center of sterilizing her without her consent. Nada Dollah is suing the Aurora hospital, Women?s Health Physicians S.C. of Aurora, and Dr. Nizar F. Olabi for Illinois medical malpractice.

In her Cook County obstetrician malpractice complaint, Dollah claims that Olabi performed a bitubal ligation on her without her consent and against her will. The procedure took place while Dollah was having her baby by cesarean section in May 2008.

Dollah is seeking at least $2 million in Illinois medical malpractice damages.

Obtaining a Patient's Informed Consent
Healthcare providers are supposed to obtain a patient?s consent before performing any medical procedure or another course of treatment. The patient must also be notified of the risks of any procedure beforehand so that he or she can make an informed decision about whether to provide that consent. Failure to obtain informed consent can be grounds for a Chicago medical malpractice lawsuit regardless of whether or not any medical complications or injuries arose from the procedure.

Tubal Ligation
Tubal ligation involves tying or cutting the fallopian tubes to prevent the woman?s egg from traveling from the uterus. It also blocks the sperm from being able to enter the fallopian tube to fertilize the egg.

If a doctor performed any medical procedure on you or initiated any type of medical care plan without your informed consent, we know how frustrated and violated you must feel that your right to make decisions about your body was taken away from you. We understand the need to hold any liable parties liable for the harm that you have suffered.
