New York Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery Lawyer

chen_600Modern science has revolutionized the way doctors perform surgeries and has drastically shortened patients’ recovery times. The advent of laparoscopic surgery in 1989 meant patients would have smaller scars and less-invasive surgeries, and that’s the case for most patients. Unfortunately, medical error can create complications in even the most common and safe surgeries.

Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, also known as Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (LC), is a common procedure where the surgeon removes the gallbladder using a few small incisions and the help of a small camera that’s inserted into the abdomen. In the hands of a skilled and experienced surgeon, this procedure is usually complication-free and takes about an hour.

Gallbladder surgery is one of the most frequent procedures in the United States, and is usually done laparoscopically. When an unskilled surgeon completes a surgery, medical errors may result. The most serious complications, such as a severed connection between liver and intestines, will be noticed immediately. Other problems, if left untreated or unnoticed, will result in death. If you or a family member recently experienced complications from surgery, please contact a New York laparoscopic gallbladder surgery lawyer at our office. We offer free consultations and would like to review your medical records to determine if you or a loved one may have a claim or may be entitled to compensation.

It’s no wonder that patients choose laparoscopic surgery over traditional gallbladder surgery, but it does have limitations. Doctors can’t see as much of your abdomen, so greater skill is needed to successfully complete your surgery. We understand that not every surgery goes by the textbook. If you’ve suffered pain or injury because of a surgeon’s mistake, you should speak with a New York laparoscopic gallbladder surgery lawyer. Our office is staffed with skilled litigators. If we choose to take your case, our professionals will work to negotiate a settlement or bring a lawsuit on your behalf in the courts system.

It’s common knowledge that the biggest risk in laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is having an unskilled surgeon. This nationwide problem led to a conference by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to focus in on solving the epidemic of surgical mistakes.
