On Tuesday, Christopher Duntsch, 46, was found guilty of injury to an elderly woman, a first-degree felony in Texas, where someone "intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence" causes injury to an elderly person.
Duntsch was arrested in 2015 on five charges of aggravated assault after causing the death of two patients and crippling four others between July 2012 and June 2013. For their case, however, prosecutors only focused on the 2012 botched surgery of Mary
Efurd, 74, came to Duntsch to have two vertebrae fused, and nearly died under Duntsch’s knife after losing a third of her blood, as well as the use of her legs.
The doctor who treated Efurd after her botched surgery said he had “done virtually everything wrong." Dr. Robert Henderson said he found implants inside of muscles instead of on the bone, and a screw was drilled directly into a nerve root in her spinal cavity, which had been amputated.
