Common Surgical Errors


All surgeries have the potential to lead to complications, which can sometimes be debilitating or life-threatening. Although not all surgical complications are the result of negligence, surgeons and support staff can make errors that can lead to serious consequences. For example, several malpractice cases involving birth injuries have recently been reported in the Baltimore-metro area. Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects. These injuries often occur as a result of excessive force used during labor and delivery. A birth injury may also result from mistakes made during C-sections or even from the failure to perform an emergency C-section in a timely manner.

Other examples of medical malpractice cases include mistakes made by the anesthesiologist. An attorney may find evidence that the anesthesiologist used too little or too much of a drug. The use of improper surgical instruments and approaches, improper follow-up care, and improper surgical planning are other examples of surgical errors that may form the basis of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
