The Devastating Consequences Of OB-GYN Malpractice
As medical specialists, obstetricians and gynecologists have important responsibilities. They are subject to high standards when it comes to diagnosing and treating patients. Their mistakes can have a life-or-death impact.
Negligence in this field can take many forms, from labor and delivery mistakes to oversights such as:
- Missed ectopic pregnancy or tubal pregnancy (a pregnancy occurring outside the womb)
- Failure to perform a pap smear or misdiagnosis of a pap smear (failure to discover cervical cancer)
- Botched surgery or surgical procedures that can injure the bladder or bowel
- Failure to perform a mammogram or mammography or the misdiagnosis of a mammogram (failure to discover or treat breast cancer)
