Anatomy of a Lawsuit: What Spine Surgeons Need to Know to Ace Their Case


Ilene R. Brenner, MD, FACEP

Ilene R. Brenner, M.D., FACEP is a board-certified Emergency Physician in Atlanta, Georgia. The first physician in her family, Dr. Brenner actually comes from two generations of attorneys. She credits her choice of medicine as a profession to the lively discussions of her father’s medical malpractice cases, as he is a recently retired defense trial attorney in medical malpractice. And it is these discussions that led to her active participation in assisting him with a number of his cases and provided the necessary background to write her book “How to Survive a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit.” In addition to this published book, Dr. Brenner has published “Schizo” a psychological thriller and spends much of her spare time writing: poetry, novels, screenplays, articles as well as a number of nonfiction works. She has spoken and written extensively on the topic of medical malpractice to support physicians through the uncertainties and stress of a lawsuit.
