Surgical procedures can be life-saving for people suffering from a variety of illnesses and injuries. However, when surgeons neglect to conduct these procedures with extreme care, they put the patient at risk, and the surgery can go from life-saving to life-threatening. It may be shocking that such a highly trained professional could be so careless, but in fact, over 4,000 preventable surgical errors occur in the United States every year.
Surgeons who make careless errors while operating put patients in danger of serious injury or even death. In doing so, they betray the trust patients and families have in them. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, we believe negligent surgeons should pay for the harm they cause to vulnerable patients. If you or someone you love was hurt by a surgical error, we will fight tirelessly for you and help you hold the medical professionals responsible financially accountable.
Surgery is often a complex procedure involving many steps, and that means many opportunities for the procedure to go wrong. Even so, it is surprising how wrong a careless surgeon can get it. Here are some of the most common and dangerous types of easily preventable surgical errors:
Any of these errors expose patients to a risk of unnecessary injury, and some may require the patient to go recover from an incorrectly performed procedure only to go back into surgery for the procedure they needed in the first place.
