Heather Hansen obtained a defense verdict for a urologist in Philadelphia County. The plaintiff alleged that the urologist was negligent in the performance of a vesicovaginal repair suffered by the plaintiff after a hysterectomy. They contended that the urologist negligently positioned the plaintiff for the surgery and thus caused femoral and obturator neuropathies. The defense contended that the positioning was proper and within the standard of care, and that this type of injury cannot occur absent negligence.

Following a ten day trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the urologist as well as the co-defendant hospital and obstetrician-gynecologist.
