Improper Surgical Techniques
At no time do patients put more faith in a doctor’s abilities than when they allow their doctor to perform surgery. Sometimes, this trust is misplaced. Doctors can make blatant mistakes. Or they perform operations that they aren’t qualified for.
Surgical errors can cause terrible injuries that result in life-long disability and even death. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as the result of a surgical error, we can help.

Surgical errors can occur in a number of ways:
- Performing surgery on the wrong side of a patient
- Improper stress positions
- Amputation of the wrong foot, hand, leg or arm
- Leaving a tool or foreign object inside the body
- Anesthesia malpractice causing brain damage
- Doctor performing an unnecessary procedure
When Doctors Try to Broaden Their Horizons … On a Patient
These days, there are few “general practitioners” left. Most doctors specialize in one particular area of the body – like the shoulder, heart, spine or knee. Sometimes, doctors attempt to perform operations that are outside their areas of specialization.
The result of this can be grotesque. We once represented a client who had suffered a complex ankle fracture. Reconstructive surgery was performed by a doctor who was not a foot and ankle specialist – as a result, the doctor used improper technique, even used the wrong screws, and the bones fused together improperly.
