Where a plaintiff brought a medical malpractice action for negligent failure to inform him of surgical risks against health care providers after he awoke blind following spinal surgery, the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding that the plaintiff’s expert, an eye surgeon, was not qualified to testify and that his reliance on medical articles and clinical notes failed to cure the lack of expert witness competency, so summary judgment for the defendants is affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
