In an article by Elizabeth Aguilera and Karen Foshay, details are provided about the lawsuit filed against Dr. Sunny Uppal, Jack Akmakjian, et al, claiming performed surgeries using parts allegedly made at an auto shop in Temecula and benefited financially for doing so.
I had a 3 plate infusion in my Neck done by Dr Jack Akmakjian
Should I be concerned?! back in 2011
Sorry for the delayed response.
I am unsure if there is a lawsuit pending against Dr. Jack Akmakjian or Orthopedic Medical Group or if it has already settled. I would suggest contacting your attorney, as they would be much more able to advise you.
The primary purpose of this site is to make the public aware of how this orthopedic practice treats people by sharing the experiences of myself and others like yourself.
I did find this Legal Proceedings Naming Dr. Uppal & Dr. Akmakjian though
How do I join this law suit. I have put in a complaint with the medical board back in 2018

I have a civil and criminal lawsuit pending in superior court against uppal. Just had to undergo second surgery to remove hardware uppal put in me. It is now evidence.
Dave… I am so sorry to hear about your surgeries to correct the problems caused at Orthopedic Medical Group of Riverside. Please let us know how things turn out, and if you would like a page dedicated to your story about Dr. Uppal and/or Dr. Jack Akmakjian please reach out to me in the contact section and I will make it happen.
I had lumbar fusion performed by Jack Akmakjian in 2012 in july 2022 I had to have the cage he put in removed and had to have a lateral interbody fusion done to correct my 2012 surgery, two days later I had to have a posterior pedicle subtraction osteotomy with decompression and instrumentation to correct the Kyphosis caused by the 2012 fusion by Jack Akmakjian. Do I have any recourse ? Is there a class action still on going? Thank you
I am so sorry to hear of your misfortune (like mine) to have had any dealings with Orthopedic Medical Group of Riverside. I am unfamiliar with any current litigations with this Riverside Orthopedic Medical Group. My best suggestion is to consult an medical malpractice attorney. I might even go so far as to look up old cases and see who the attorneys were that have already sued Orthopedic Medical Group, and reach out to them as they are already familiar with some of the practices of this organization.
By providing this site, I am doing as much as I can to prevent people like us, who have been trained by society to trust doctors and surgeons, to realize there are bad actors in this arena.
Again, these are my personal opinions, but they are based on many first hand accounts and my own experiences with Orthopedic Medical Group of Riverside.
I truly wish you the best of luck.
