TREVOR Noah is suing a New York hospital for negligence after claiming that surgery had left him "disabled."
The Daily Show Host, 37, says he suffered “serious personal injury” after undergoing an operation at the Hospital for Special Surgery in November last year.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Noah claims that both the New York City hospital and orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Riley J. Williams were “careless in failing to treat and care for [him] in a careful and skilful manner.”
His lawsuit adds that the hospital and surgeon failed to prescribe proper medications and conduct proper testing in order to diagnose his condition.
The 37-year-old, who is also the author of the best-selling book titled Born A Crime, lamented that their their negligence had left him “sick, sore, lame, and disabled,” with a “loss of enjoyment for life.”
However, he failed to disclose what surgery he allegedly undertook.
Thus far, the hospital has been strongly denied Noah’s claims, describing them as “meritless” according to People.
The organization added that it was still "committed to excellence in the care we provide to each of the more than 150,000 patients we treat each year."
