14 February, 2018, 21:02
Paxton's family, who were surely surprised themselves, now believes his death could have been prevented.
The suit filed on February 9 against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center alleges the surgeon used a "high risk and unconventional surgical approach" that was unnecessary and that he lacked the experience to perform.
On Feb. 25, 2017, the 61-year-old actor died of a stroke just 11 days after he had undergone heart surgery.
Almost a year after Apollo 13 star Bill Paxton died from complications from surgery, his family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the surgeon and hospital that treated him.
They claim the hospital and the doctor misrepresented the risks of the surgery and failed to disclose that it was an unconventional approach that was "beyond the scope" of the doctors experience and privileges, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The family also claimed that the hospital failed to discipline cardiovascular surgeon Ali Khoynezhad for his conduct in the actor's case, and that the hospital also failed to revealed relevant information to actor and his family member about the "unconventional" and risk associated with the initial procedure Paxton underwent.

"But we can share the following: Nothing is more important to Cedars-Sinai than the health and safety of our patients", the statement said. These remain our top priorities. Paxton's cause of death was officially determined to be a stroke. One of the reasons for our high quality is that we thoroughly review concerns about any patient's medical care.
