A Dallas County resident is suing the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics alleging negligence.

Mark Christopher Muelhaupt said James Davis, a clinical associate professor of cardiothoracic surgery, failed to correctly treat his congenital chest condition.

According to court documents, Davis performed thoracic surgery on Muelhaupt in January 2009 at UIHC. After the operation, Muelhaupt experienced several physical and mental problems, which required him to have subsequent surgeries, which were also performed by Davis. His negligence claim attributes a permanent disability, medical costs, and loss of income.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday morning in the Johnson County Courthouse.
