New Jersey Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery Attorney

ehr4Errors can occur in any surgery, even during common surgeries such as a gallbladder removal. Surgeons use a laparoscopic procedure in gallbladder surgery, also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), for 90 percent of patients. If a surgeon is unskilled, or proper care isn’t taken in post-operative recovery, you or a loved one may be injured or die due to medical negligence.

We know that most gallbladder surgeries are safe and efficient, but we understand that not every procedure goes as you’d planned. When the surgery doesn’t follow standard procedures, a number of complications can arise. Chances of infection may increase, as can chances of medication, incision or anesthesiology errors. When your surgery leaves you with added health complications, please contact a New Jersey laparoscopic gallbladder surgery attorney in our office.

We will thoroughly review your medical records and discuss your experience during and after the surgery. After completing a detailed analysis of your situation, we’ll determine if you may have been the victim of medical negligence and if you might be entitled to compensation to offset your increased medical bills and emotional suffering. If an invasive surgery resulted in wrongful death or lifelong health problems, we want to speak to you to determine how we can help.

The gallbladder stores and releases the bile that is secreted by the liver. This digestive fluid serves to break down fats, which are then absorbed by the digestive tract. When gallstones form, they can block this bile’s flow, creating painful, severe gallstone attacks. Surgery to remove the gallbladder is normally the remedy for these uncomfortable gallstones. This type of procedure once involved a three- or four-day hospital stay and a large, open incision. Advances in medicine have allowed for quicker laparoscopic surgery, which was invented in 1989, and shorter recovery times. During such surgeries, a tube is inserted through an incision in the naval and a camera is snaked through the tube. The surgeon uses tiny instruments to detach the gallbladder and safely remove it.

The major problem with laparoscopic surgery is that the surgeon must rely on images from the small television camera to correctly identify each duct on the small organ and cut the correct ones. Substandard procedures at any stage of the surgery can compromise a patient’s health and well-being. If your health has suffered as the result of your surgery, please contact a New Jersey laparoscopic gallbladder surgery attorney in our office today.
