Lawsuits Against Former Wilmington Doctor Remain Open

WILMINGTON -- Several lawsuits remain open against a former Wilmington doctor whose license was revoked for performing questionable surgeries.

The state medical board found then Dr. Steven Olchowski had charged patients for one type of gastric bypass, and then performed a simpler procedure resulting in serious medical complications.

Lawsuits against Olchowski filed by several patients have still not been resolved.

New Hanover Regional Medical Center has dropped out of several of those cases.

After not being allowed to practice medicine in North Carolina, Olchowski moved to Michigan, where he also received complaints.

Olchowski changed his last name. His license in Michigan was suspended in March.
