2nd Rate Comedian Trevor Noah half the Man he used to be due to botched surgery allegations?

Comedian Trevor Noah is suing the Hospital for Special Surgery as well as Dr Riley J Williams, both located in New York, for being “negligent” during a surgery he underwent in November 2020.

Noah, 37, claims both the New York City hospital and orthopaedic surgeon were “careless in failing to treat and care for [him] in a careful and skilful manner” in the court documents filed in the New York Supreme Court, obtained by The New York Post’sPage Six.

The Daily Show host claims he was a patient of Dr Williams between August 25 and December 17, 2020. He underwent the surgery on November 23 that year.

Noah’s lawsuit adds that the hospital and surgeon failed to “prescribe proper medications,” failed to “discontinue certain prescription medications” and failed to do proper testing in order to “diagnose the conditions”.

The documents also state that Noah suffered “serious personal injury” that are described as “permanent, severe and grievous”.

Noah’s injuries have allegedly left him “rendered sick, sore, lame, and disabled”.

The lawsuit includes claims such as that the South African comedian “has suffered a loss of enjoyment for life”.

None of the documents state what Noah’s procedure was for, but a hospital profile for Dr Williams cites that he “specialises in knee, shoulder and elbow” surgery.

Orthopaedic surgeons can treat a number of body parts such as bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles, according to Penn Medicine.

A representative for the Hospital of Special Surgery denied Noah’s claims, calling them “meritless,” as reported by People.

Page Six has reached out to reps for Noah but has yet to receive a response.
