What Can Go Wrong During A Surgery?

Of all the types of medical care that raise people's concerns, surgery is near the top of that list. Allowing someone else to cut into your body requires a high degree of faith in his or her skills as a surgeon.

There are few other medical procedures where the idea that something could go wrong is so prevalent. The fear people feel about being operated on is not unfounded. There are real risks. The consequences of a surgeon making a mistake can be profound and lasting.

There are many different types of errors a surgeon can commit. Some of the more common ways a surgeon can harm a patient include:

  • Wrong-site surgery (operating on the wrong part of the body)
  • Wrong-person surgery (performing the wrong operation on a person)
  • Foreign object left behind
  • Nicked or perforated organs, blood vessels or nerves
  • Failure to monitor for signs of infection

Often when doctors make mistakes, there is a strong reluctance to admit them. We work with a network of medical experts that allows us to identify when the care that was provided deviated from the accepted standards of care.
