Surgical Complications Can Be the Result of Negligence
Surgical complications can occur during any type of surgery. It is impossible for doctors to guarantee a problem-free result for every surgery, and there is indeed a certain amount of risk associated with every surgery. But if your doctor was negligent – if he or she deviated from standard medical practice and caused the surgical complications – then the doctor, and possibly the hospital, may be liable in a medical malpractice suit.
Common surgical complications include performing the wrong surgery, performing surgery on the wrong area of the body, performing surgery on the wrong patient, and leaving items inside the body cavity after surgery. If a patient experiences complications that were not part of the normal surgical risks associated with the procedure, then these complications may be due to medical malpractice.
