MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities dentist will pay more than $2 million to the family of a teenager who died following wisdom teeth surgery.
Seventeen-year-old Sydney Galleger’s heart stopped during the procedure in Edina two years ago. She died a week later.
Galleger’s parents sued Dr. Paul Tompach for medical malpractice.
Online records show the two sides reached a settlement in late October.
The state temporarily suspended Tompach’s license, saying his office incorrectly administered general anesthesia.
