Woman says surgeon removed kidney by mistake in botched operation

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Dena Knapp went to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, S.D., to have an adrenal gland and associated mass removed.

Instead, according to a lawsuit, Dr. Scott Baker removed her healthy right kidney, USA Today reports. The suit claims that Baker was told by the hospital pathology department after the Oct. 5, 2016, surgery that he removed the kidney and not the glands.

However, two days later he told Knapp that he hadn’t heard from pathology, the suit alleges.
