CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — The professional wrestler known as Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against the Tampa-based Laser Spine Institute, saying the clinic performed unnecessary surgeries that damaged his career.

The Tampa Bay Times ( ) reports that Hogan filed the lawsuit Monday morning in Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court. He filed under his real name, which is Terry Bollea. It seeks damages of $50-million.

In addition to claiming unnecessary surgeries, the lawsuit also says the Laser Spine Institute used an endorsement from Hogan without permission or payment.

The Laser Spine Institute said in a statement Monday that it is aware of the lawsuit, but to protect patient privacy, it would not discuss the details of the case.
