All surgery carries certain risks, but occasionally you are needlessly injured because the surgeon failed to perform up to the standard of care. It is possible that the surgeon wasn't qualified to perform that type of surgery or that the procedure wasn't required in the first place. The surgeon may have injured you during the procedure and failed to recognize the injuries before complications occurred.

Before your surgery, the surgeon is obligated to give you informed consent, to tell you all about the intended procedure and its possible complications so that you may decide if you need or want the surgery.
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon uses a scope instead of opening your abdomen through a large incision. Although this procedure is advantageous by usually allowing you to go home immediately afterwards, it carries certain complications that may be life threatening.
For example, if during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove your gall bladder the surgeon cannot properly identify the anatomy, he may cut blood vessels causing hemorrhage or cut the wrong bile duct. This laparoscopic cholecystectomy error may not only require further corrective surgery, but may lead to permanent disability as well.
Some of the other types of surgical negligence cases that we confidently handle include:
- Gastric bypass complications
- OBGYN malpractice (such as complications during a C-section)
- Orthopedic malpractice (injuries during the replacement of a joint or surgery on a bone)
- Plastic surgery / breast implant malpractice
