Can I sue my surgeon to make him help with additional medical costs because his treatment in Georgia? 1 Answers as of March 21, 2011

Can I sue surgeon for medical costs since I need treatment after his negligence? In 2008, my oral surgeon removed one of my teeth, causing a sinus fistula. For two years, he told me it would heal on its own whenever I asked about it. I've had 5-6 sinus infections because of this problem. I was referred to an ear nose and throat specialist by my primary physician and she said the oral surgeon should have repaired the fistula within thirty days of surgery. Now I need another surgery to repair the fistula.
