Common Surgical Errors

Surgery is a serious undertaking for both the patient and the surgeon involved. There are fundamental risks in any surgery that a skilled and meticulous surgeon should overcome. But, in cases where the patient sustains injury through the fault of the surgeon, medical negligence could be to blame.

Examples of surgical errors include:

  • Nicking arteries and vital organs
  • Leaving behind instruments in the patient
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Anesthesia errors

We approach every surgery error case with a thorough, proactive approach, searching for pertinent information in surgery logs and other sources.
