Every surgical procedure is accompanied by a certain amount of unforeseen complications; however, not every negative outcome can be attributed to bad luck. Some common surgical errors include wrong site procedures, incorrect procedures, procedures on the wrong person, foreign objects left in the body after surgery, and improper suturing. These surgical errors may occur during certain laparoscopic procedures such as gall bladder surgeries, appendectomies, hysterectomies, and gastric bypass surgeries, as well as other procedures such as eye, orthopedic, bypass, neurosurgery, and robotic surgeries, and anesthesia errors. Although many patients experience post-surgical complications that are typical of many procedures, even those normal surgical injuries may be due to medical malpractice if you were not informed of the risks prior to the procedure.
