Kansas City Surgical Error Lawyers Investigating Retained Scalpels and Surgical Instruments & other OR Errors
Risks of Surgery
Surgery is intended to correct problems. Procedures that remove cancers and tumors, correct birth defects, and replace damaged body parts such as hips and knees are intended to help patients live longer and enjoy a better quality of life. Sometimes surgeries are not able to compensate for illness or damage because a cancer has spread too far, the body rejects a transplant, or a birth defect can only be partly corrected. Patients should understand that surgical procedures are risky. When negligent surgical errors compound that risk, however, patients have a right to fair and just compensation for injuries sustained as a result of that medical negligence.

Types of Surgical Errors
Our surgical error lawyers help people who have been injured by surgical errors such as:
- Surgeons operating on the wrong body part
- Anesthesia complications during surgery
- Leaving instruments and needles in the surgical wound
- Post-operative infection and other post-surgical problems
- Scalpel accidents and other surgical mistakes
- Accidental injuries to the brain or other organs
- Unnecessary surgeries
- Operating on the wrong patient
We help patients hurt due to errors during common surgical procedures such as C-sections, lasik surgery, cosmetic surgery, and cataract surgery. Even common surgeries like these can result in wound infection, nosocomial infections, or other hospital-caused injuries if post-surgery care is negligently administered.
