英文摘要

The plaintiff suffered from herniated disc of cervical spine and underwent surgical treatment. The surgeon (defendant) unexpectedly noticed severely calcified herniated disc upon operation and decided to remove only partial disc to avoid disastrous injury to spinal cord. However, the lower extremities of plaintiff became totally paralyzed after operation. The plaintiff claimed for compensation of damages caused by medical malpractice. The district, high and supreme courts all found for the defendant. This article comments on this case with special reference to the liability of changing scope of surgery that expressly authorized, and the determination and burden of proof regarding the medical negligence.
