Women Claims Plastic Surgeon Discriminated Against Her for Having HIV

A Hinsdale plastic surgeon settled a lawsuit for $25,000 after he allegedly denied service to a woman because she has HIV.

Dr. George Kouris of Midwest Plastic Surgery, 718 N. York Rd., allegedly refused to perform a breast reduction surgery on the HIV-positive 47-year-old, citing the safety of himself and his employees, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago.

In doing so, Kouris violated the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits medical discrimination based on someone’s HIV status, prosecutors said. The woman said it was the first time she experienced that type of treatment.
