See, its very difficult to get him punished in terms of imprisonment. But, you can seek a huge compensation from him. METHODS TO SEEK COMPENSATION:-

1. Issue a legal notice calling upon him to pay the expanses of operation along with compensation which u seem is sufficient.

2. Write a letter to Medical council of India against the Dr. and request for cancellation of his licence. This may pressurize him.

3. Either file a civil suit or a consumer complaint.
