Jury awards $9.4M for botched colon surgery

A Lawrence Superior Court jury has awarded $9.4 million to a Massachusetts man who filed a medical malpractice suit accusing a surgeon of failing to properly treat his post-surgery complications, resulting in “severe and permanent personal injuries,” according to court documents.

Marcos Aguirre sued Jonathan Gordon, a North Andover-based surgeon who treated Aguirre at Lawrence General Hospital, for medical malpractice and negligence.

During the trial, Aguirre — represented by Boston-based law firm Lubin & Meyer — presented evidence that Gordon failed to properly treat him for an abdominal infection they say was the result a post-operative intestinal leak in 2013.
