Toriumi v Ritz Carlton

The below are excerpted from documents from a lawsuit filed by Dr. Dean M. Toriumi in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division in January 2006 .

“Plaintiff (Toriumi) has submitted a report from an orthopedic surgeon indicating that plaintiff has suffered permanent injuries as the result of an electrical shock received by him at the subject hotel. Plaintiff is a plastic surgeon and claims that the electrical shock has interfered with his ability to perform surgery.”

Further, these “diverse injuries to and about his body, both internally and externally” are later described as being of “a permanent and lasting nature” and are sufficiently severe such that “as a result of which the plaintiff has been and will continue to be further prevented and limited in attending to his usual duties and affairs, and has lost and will in the future lose great gain.”

Over the course of the litigation, Toriumi tried to submit the medical records of his patients as part of his case.

Jaimie DeRosa was a fellow at the time. I wonder if she performed some (all?) of his functions? Doing so would help to conceal his deficits from his patients, to whom he did not reveal his injuries when obtaining informed consent.

Interesting that he tried to submit medical records. It raises the possibility that he would deliberately botch a patient to help win his case.

You are on your own. These people are not trustworthy.

I see it may be reason peoples say he dont do his own surgery. some one also says surgeon told them hes not happy with the surgery results in many or most patients. but told that patient that their surgery was good. but patient realized their surgery was not good too.
he may be cant tell patients some one else is doing surgery or people will not come for surgery. also seems surgery is done by not experienced other surgeon but by new surgeon learning. and also that the new surgeon changes from time.

Knowing the many negative reviews the dr. toriumi, i think any common sense person can not advise this doctor.

Well I guess you have no idea the complexities surrounding your revision procedure and the compromises these doctors have to make for you just to make this procedure work for you

Dr. Toriumi should stick to teaching and not touch any patient. He is not the one performing surgeries his fellows are. Depending on how talented that fellow is under Toriumi directions that is the nose you will get. Living in Chicago I will not consider this doctor. FYI he is also not allowed to operate in the hospital he was asked to leave.

Then he would not be the Head of the Division of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Illinois.

Not true. He can still be teaching but not operating. Why don't you call and ask where he operates. His own pears in Chicago will tell you he is not allowed to operate in the UOI.

Do you work for Toriumi? Because you are aggressively advertising him. It's pretty sad actually. Look at all his reviews. I hope people don't get fulled by this.

As someone who has a collapsing nose and has done extensive research regarding revisions
I understand that the little bit of septal cartilage left will not achieve the amount of structural grafts I need to restore the foundations of my nose
And ear is limited in strength for structural grafting and may not withstand the healing forces of surgery such as scar contracture and graft survival
So I have developed a great appreciation of doctors such as dr Toriumi and dr Davis who are experienced with rib amoung several other dr's
And who have gone to great lengths and are very successful amoung their peers in overcoming the enormous challenges facing revision rhinoplasty
