SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A woman is suing a doctor at Willamette Valley Cancer Institute for malpractice.

The woman is claiming that the doctor injured her during a surgery.

The woman said she had surgery for a pelvic condition in 2015. She said Dr. Charles K. Anderson was negligent and cut into her rectum instead of her vagina, causing a substantial injury.

Six months later, she said he had to have another surgery to fix it and has had issues ever since.

She is asking for up to $6 million in damages.
