NUH sued over transplant op

A MAN who gained a kidney but lost his wife following a 2005 organ transplant has sued two doctors and the hospital where the surgery was performed.

Mr Surender Singh, a 38-year-old father of three, claims that specialists from The National University Hospital (NUH) botched the relatively routine procedure, causing his wife to bleed to death internally.

He is seeking unspecified damages and money to support the couple's children, among other things.

The NUH and the two specialists who conducted the transplant are denying the claims and have engaged lawyers from heavyweight firms Allen & Gledhill as well as Rajah & Tann.

Mr Singh, through lawyer S Pallaniappan of Straits Law Corporation asked last week for hearing dates next month.
