Submitted by Aaron Rift on 12/06/2017 at 11:10 AM

Bret Hart has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Justin Yeung over what he is claiming was botched wrist surgery. Here are some details on the case courtesy of

* Two years ago Hart underwent surgery to deal with an injury to his right wrist related to a 1981 wrestling incident where he chipped his scaphold
* The scaphold is one of eight small bones in the wrist
* Hart visited Dr. Justin Yeung, a plastic surgeon, who said he could repair the wrist with a partial fusion of the wrist bones
* The surgery took place on Nov. 23, 2015
* Six weeks after the surgery Hart returned to Yeung’s office to have three pins removed and complained about continued pain and swelling in his wrist
* Notably he complained that his index finger and thumb “did not function”
* Yeung told Hart to wait and see how it healed but the pain and immobility continued through visits in March, April and August of 2016

Hart is claiming:

* Yeung and his team were negligent and breached their duties to care for Hart
* Yeung and his team left a tourniquet on Hart’s right arm for too long and cut off circulation to the nerves and tendons of his and right index finger and thumb
* Those fingers were injured, immobilized, by the lack of oxygen they were supplied
* Hart is now incapable of participating in recreational and social activities
* Including using pens, pencils, eating utensils and even dressing himself without assistance
* Hart underwent another surgery in October but the outcome of that is not yet known
* The lawsuit seeks $1 million in general damages
* Plus unspecified amounts for lost income and other losses
* A statement of defense disputing the unproven allegations has not been filed
