Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, says he underwent a botched operation at a New York City hospital last year, which left him with “permanent” and “severe” injuries, this has disabled him as well.
The comedian accused Dr. Riley J. Williams III and the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan of neglecting to properly care for him out of negligence & carelessness.
The hospital said that the accusations were “unfounded.”
The suit also says the hospital mishandled Noah’s medications while he was a patient, from Aug. 25 to Dec. 17, 2020. (The surgery was on Nov. 23, 2020.)
Noah’s lawsuit alleged his injuries are “permanent, severe and “grievous” and leave him “lame” and “disabled,” noted the New York Post’s Page Six, which also obtained the suit.
The suit did not give any details about the surgery or diagnosis. Williams’ bio says he’s an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in knees, shoulders, and elbows.
