ARNOLD LYNN BOMAR v. HART & COOLEY FLEX DIVISION ET AL. (Tenn. SWCAP December 23, 2009)
Employee received an award of workers' compensation benefits for a 1994 injury that aggravated a pre-existing condition, Legg-Perthes disease. He received medical care for the condition thereafter through workers' compensation. In 2007, his treating physician recommended hip replacement surgery. The trial court found that the necessity for surgery was not caused by the original injury. Employee has appealed. We affirm the judgment.
