Legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against the Laser Spine Institute in Florida after undergoing multiple procedures which he deemed both useless and damaging to his career. In the lawsuit, Hogan claims that he first sought out advice from LSI in 2009 for back problems involving scoliosis and bulging discs. After being suckered into false "medical advice", Hogan allowed LSI to perform multiple procedures to help correct his back issues.From TMZ:Hogan claims the procedures actually made him feel worse in the long run -- and blames the institute for not advising him that the laser treatment is only a temporary solution, not a permanent one. Hogan claims he eventually had to undergo major back surgery with a different set of doctors -- and they actually fixed his back. Now, Hogan says he wants LSI to pay for screwing him up -- and for causing him to miss out on employment opportunities in the entertainment world that would have netted him tens of millions of dollars. And to add insult to injury, Hulk says LSI used his name and image to promote their business without his permission.LSI has not yet commented on the allegations, but did release a statement acknowledging that the lawsuit exists. "To protect patient privacy as well as the legal process, we do not discuss the details of litigation matters."The 59-year old Hogan currently makes his home in Tampa.
