Steve Burrows

DOC NYC 2018

The filmmaker seeks justice for his mother, who suffers catastrophic complications after routine surgery.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US. Comedic director Steve Burrows’ mom is a victim of this sloppy medical system when a routine hip replacement surgery lands her in coma with permanent brain damage. Seeking justice, her son takes on the Goliath of corporate medicine in this legal drama meets medical mystery. The result is a cautionary tale about the future of our profit-driven healthcare system.
