A Bonner Springs man has sued a Kansas City-area hospital for injuries he suffered when an operating table malfunctioned.

It's the second such lawsuit Shawnee Mission Medical Center has
faced this year. The founder of the huge Deffenbaugh Industries
Inc. waste management firm sued earlier after he was dumped from an
X-ray table in an accident that left him paralyzed.

Ivan Zeleznak filed the latest lawsuit in Johnson County
District Court. He alleges that during surgery to remove his
prostate last year, the special table dropped him five to six
inches, causing permanent injuries.

Zeleznak is also suing the table's manufacturer, Steris Corp.
