We represented the defendants in a medical malpractice and wrongful death case in which the plaintiff alleged that the defendants failed to timely diagnose an aggressive form of endometrial cancer in a 65-year-old patient.  When we moved for summary judgment on the undisputed facts, the court concurred with our position that, despite a factual disagreement between the parties as to why no endometrial biopsy had been obtained following the concerning results of a transvaginal sonogram, the patient’s cancer was nonetheless already incurable and fatal by that time (due to its type and stage), so the defendants never could have had an opportunity to recommend or provide curative treatment.  In other words, even if the biopsy had been obtained immediately after the sonogram, and had been positive, there was no treatment in  modern medicine that could have cured, reversed or meaningfully slowed the growth or spread of the decedent’s cancer, so the patient’s illness and death were not caused by the treatment or alleged lack thereof.  The case was dismissed.
