Trial to begin for doctor accused of performing unnecessary surgery
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A trial is expected to begin Monday for a doctor accused of performing surgery that patients did not need.
Doctor Atiq Durrani is charged with health care fraud in federal court. Durrani is also on trial right now in Butler County, Ohio, in a civil suit. Testimony began last week.
More than 170 former patients have sued Durrani, claiming the spine surgeon performed unnecessary procedures. But Durrani has fled the country and is believed to be in Pakistan.
