Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - A local plastic surgeon says he's disappointed in a $5 million judgement filed against him.

A jury in Mahoning County Court made the award in a civil case filed against Dr. Richard Gentile of Boardman.

Attorneys for the woman who filed the suit say a procedure performed on their client three years ago caused infections, nerve damage and scarring.

Dr. Gentile tells 21 news that the patient signed seven consent forms detailing the risks, benefits and alternatives to the surgery.
