Schecter v. Bosley Medical Group

NY Supreme Ct New York County 150200/09


Medical Malpractice

Patient complained of wide scarring, excessive pulling of the scalp, hair and skin loss after surgery at the Bosley office in New York City.

Dr. Alpeter cut out a donor strip measuring over 12 inches long from patients head. Later in the day he informed the patient that the donor strip was not enough and excised an additional piece of tissue.
Dr. Alpeter posited that the patient's injuries may have occurred as a result of his own poor healing response or genetic disposition to scarring.

In 2013 The Bosley Medical Group argued it had no liability because it exercises no control over Dr. Alpeter because he makes all treatment decisions independently without supervision from BMG,  despite the Plaintiffs argument that BMG referred to its doctors as "Bosley physicians" in written and video materials in which Dr. Alpeter appears and refers to the hair transplant process as the "Bosley experience".
