Hulk Hogan Wrestles With Laser Spine Center in Lawsuit

Professional wrestler Hulk Hogan claims in a medical malpractice lawsuit that a Florida-based surgery company that advertises on the Internet and television persuaded him to undergo a half-dozen “unnecessary and ineffective” spinal operations, worsening his back problems.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry G. Bollea, seeks $50 million for lost work opportunities during a 19-month period when he was a patient at Laser Spine Institute, according to the lawsuit filed today in Florida state court in Clearwater.
