  • Three years ago, on December 13, 2007, Dr. Koris had a stroke while in his office after finishing the last case of the day. It had snowed heavily that day, and the first symptoms of the stroke were flu like. Shortly after they started, he decided that he was too sick to drive home, and called a cab. he went to the parking lot to wait for a cab, which never came. After one half hour, he met an OR tech who offered to take him to the ER, and by doing so, saved his life. A CT scan showed no bleeding. he was later admitted to the CCU for a hypertensive episode. Later that night, when he had trouble breathing, an MRI confirmed his stroke. He awoke from a coma in the neurology ICU and slowly became aware of his condition: intubated, being fed with a “G-tube”. Much later he had to decide what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. Fortunately the stroke left him with a motor deficit, but completely intact mentally. he decided to continue doing what he was trained for; Orthopedics. This would be a medical legal practice until his loss of motor function returned. He would start by doing Chart Reviews, and later IME’s and finally, Expert Witness Testimony as well as lecturing and teaching. Dr. Koris has established a business, doing medical legal practice for attorneys and insurance companies.
