Surgical Mistakes and Medical Malpractice

The duty that medical professionals – and particularly surgeons – have to their patients can almost be considered to be something of sacred responsibility. They are asked to faithfully and flawlessly diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries or to perform intricate surgical procedures. Moreover, they are the only individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to do so. Yet each year there are thousands upon thousands of cases where mistakes by these trusted healthcare workers resulted in either a worsened state of health, delayed recovery, or even tragically in the preventable loss of life.

If you or your loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice then it is likely that you have incurred additional medical expenses and experienced other adverse effects. These are burdens that we do not believe you should have to bear alone.

Common Surgical Mistakes

Of the broad variety of medical mistakes that might occur, those that occur during surgery or which are related to the performance of a surgical procedure are particularly problematic. Patients are rarely if ever more vulnerable than during a surgery, when they may be under anesthesia and completely unable to speak up on their own behalf. Alarmingly, surgical mistakes are fairly common and the following are some of the most frequently encountered surgical errors:

  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Improper suturing
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Foreign objects left inside the body
  • Mishandling of surgical instruments
  • Wrong procedure
