As for the hospital itself, the family says the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles "concealed information relating to the risks of surgery".
In the lawsuit which was filed on Friday, the Paxton family alleges that Dr. Ali Khoynezhad, the surgeon who performed the operation, was not fit to act out the surgery.
The actor suffered a stroke just 11 days following the procedure and passed away, and his family is now suing Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the surgeon for wrongful death.
The family contends that Khoynezhad's actions, and the inactions of Cedars-Sinai, caused Paxton to suffer the complications that resulted in his death, according to the release, which cites court documents. Paxton is survived by his two children, James and Lydia, and his wife Louise.
Paxton, known for his roles in movies like Aliens and Twister, passed away in February of past year.
The death certificate showed that Paxton had undergone surgery on February 14, 2017, to replace a heart valve and to correct an aortic aneurysm. When notified of the complications, he failed to return to the operating room in a timely way, "causing a delay in treatment resulting in damage", the complaint said.

A spokesperson for Cedars-Sinai was not immediately available for comment, but the hospital did issue an earlier written statement, saying that it was prohibited by law from discussing individual cases.
But, the statement added: "Nothing is more important to Cedars-Sinai than the health and safety of our patients".
"These remain our top priorities", the statement continued. "This process ensures that we can continue to provide the highest quality care". In an interview with Marc Maron's "WTF" podcast, which dropped a week before his surgery, Paxton said he had suffered a bout of rheumatic fever as a seventh grader growing up in Fort Worth.
