DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, with costs.
The defendants met their burden of establishing the absence of any departure from good and accepted medical practice (see Arkin v Resnick, 68 AD3d 692) and, in any event, established that there was no injury. In opposition, the plaintiff argued that the defendants were liable under the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur (see generally Antoniato v Long Is. Jewish Med. Ctr., 58 AD3d 652, 654; DiGiacomo v Cabrini Med. Ctr., 21 AD3d 1052, 1054-1055), but failed to raise a triable issue of fact as to whether the plaintiff sustained the alleged injury. Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
RIVERA, J. P., FLORIO, MILLER and ENG, JJ., concur.
