Improper Surgical Procedures


Although physicians and other medical professionals receive extensive training any surgical procedure has a risk. The severity of possible complications may vary but mistakes caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse, physicians assistant or other parties create an unnecessarydanger regardless of the procedure. If the wrong surgical procedures are performed, the results are in all likelihood to be more harmful than beneficial. Improper surgical procedures can endanger the health and welfare of a patient who is already in need of medical attention.

Today, surgeons and other doctors are responsible for the care of many patients, placing a strain on their time and attention. So too are they are dependent upon the information that they receive from nurses and others who are more engaged with the patients. A gap in this communication can increase the likelihood of critical errors including, surgury on the wrong patient, wrong-site surgery, or possibly 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

If you or someone you love has been injured by the negligent actions of a surgeon, you may be able to seek financial compensation.
