There is nothing simple about having a surgical procedure done. Both patients and medical professionals take extreme precaution to ensure a smooth pre-operation, operation, and post-operation. Yet, even with extensive training and important routines to avoid them, doctors, nurses, or surgeons regularly make mistakes. If any medical professionals have fallen below the accepted and expected standards of care and cause their patient to sustain injuries that have a negative impact, you may be entitled to compensation.
Common types of surgical errors can be having the wrong operation performed, a foreign object being left inside the body after an operation, or the wrong part of the body operated on.
Additional surgical errors may be:
- Nerve Damage
- Gastric bypass surgery errors
- Unnecessary surgery
- Cardiac catheterization injuries
- Stent procedure injuries
- Angioplasty injuries
- Cardiac bypass injuries
- Surgery on the wrong patient
- Anesthetic drug negligence
- Piercing vital organs
