Dr. Seydi Aksut was once one of the busiest cardiologist in Alabama. According to federal data in 2012, Dr. Aksut installed more heart stents than any other doctor in Alabama.
Unfortunately, it seems like many of the procedures may have been unnecessary. In 2013 Vaughn Hospital performed an independent review of all stent cases and notified patients who may have been impacted. Since then, more than 12 lawsuits have been filed against Dr. Aksut.
