CHICAGO — A man is suing medical providers, citing alleged negligence.

William G. Brooks Jr. filed a complaint on Jan. 24 in Cook County Circuit Court against physician Gregory C. Bryniczka; Northwest Podiatry Center Ltd.; and Presence St. Joseph Hospital, alleging they failed to perform surgery in a careful manner.

According to the complaint, in January 2017, during a surgical procedure of his left foot for a neuroma condition, plaintiff was given anesthesia and transferred during and after surgery, during which time he allegedly tore a meniscus in his left knee. Plaintiff claims he subsequently required additional medical care and treatment, including additional surgery to repair the injury.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks more than $50,000 plus costs. He is represented by Charles Hornewer of The Hornewer Law Firm LLC in Chicago.
