Ophthalmologist faces lawsuit for alleged malpractice

A civil lawsuit was brought against a Hudson ophthalmologist, Dr. Anthony Novak, for malpractice. The lawsuit was filed by Charles J. May last month.

The lawsuit alleges that Novak, when working at the Fairview Red Wing Medical Center in Red Wing, Minn., permanently injured and disfigured May’s eye socket in 2006 with improper reconstruction surgery.May’s lawsuit also claims Novak, who specialized in ophthalmology at Fairview Red Wing, did not refer him to an ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

The lawsuit claims May has paid for medical care and treatment for his damaged eye, including multiple surgeries. May must also pay for future treatment, according to the lawsuit.
