Improper Surgical Procedures

Despite the extensive education and training that physicians and other medical professionals receive, no surgical procedure is without risk. Though the nature and severity of possible complications varies, surgical mistakes caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse, or other parties create an unnecessary danger, regardless of the procedure. If the wrong type of surgical procedure is performed, the effects are likely to be much more harmful than beneficial.

Improper surgical procedures can endanger the health and welfare of a patient who is already in need of significant medical attention. If you or someone you love has been injured by the negligent actions of a surgeon, you may be able to seek financial compensation.

Wrong Procedure

In the modern American medical system, surgeons and other doctors are often responsible for the care of many patients, placing a strain on their time and attention. Accordingly, they are dependent upon the information that they receive from nurses and others who are engaged with a patient’s care. This distance can increase the likelihood of critical errors, leading to wrong patient surgery, wrong-site surgery, or possibly the performance of an improper procedure for a patient’s particular ailment. The following are some potential complications that may arise:

  • Unnecessary incisions
  • Damage to healthy organs
  • Unnecessary scarring
  • Requiring further surgical procedures
  • Infection
  • Organ failure
