Our medical malpractice attorneys are investigating claims of negligent medical treatment by Scott E. Mimms, MD, alleging the doctor negligently performed cosmetic and bariatric surgeries including liposuction which led to patients developing an infection, sepsis, and permanent disfigurement. Dr. Mimms’s surgical privileges have been revoked by an Indianapolis hospital and the Indiana Attorney General sought suspension of Dr. Mimms’s license to practice medicine. Dr. Mimms was accused of performing procedures at unlicensed facilities, of not having an anesthesiologist or certified nurse anesthetist present for the procedures, and of not using appropriate or sanitary anesthesia techniques. On January 26, 2023, the Indiana Medical Licensing Board suspended Dr. Mimms’s medical license for 90 days.
