New York Gallbladder Surgery Lawyer

Clinical-TrialsWhen you visit the hospital for a routine surgery, you assume that the doctors and nurses there are professionals who will provide excellent care. That’s not always true. Even though gallbladder surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States, complications still sometimes happen.

In 90 percent of cases today, gallbladder surgery is a laparoscopic procedure that uses a tiny camera to view the ducts being cut or clipped by the surgeon. The surgery is also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). The major surgical risk involved in the procedure is the surgeon’s small field of vision, compared with the full view of the abdominal area seen during traditional gallbladder surgery. Traditionally, a larger incision was made and the bladder was moved aside for a full, direct view of the gallbladder and its connecting ducts.

If a major complication arises, such as severing an incorrect duct, the patient may have health problems in the immediate future and require further surgery. If a complication from surgery or improper post-operative recovery isn’t discovered soon enough, your loved one is at risk of early death. If you believe that you or a loved one was injured during a procedure, please call a New York gallbladder surgery lawyer at our office for an evaluation concerning your case.

Complications don’t occur in most gallbladder surgeries, but when they do, it’s likely they might be the result of medical negligence. Such problems don’t just occur when the surgeon cuts an incorrect duct, although that is a major problem that can sever the connection between the liver and intestines. Many different complications can lead to a patient’s death or continuing health problems, such as improper anesthesia or medicine administration, an infection or incision errors.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a direct result of gallbladder surgery, or if a loved one has died, please do not hesitate to contact a New York gallbladder surgery lawyer in our office. We will review your medical records and the medical complications you’ve had since the surgery, to determine if you have a good reason for a medical claim, settlement or lawsuit. If we decide you have been the victim of medical negligence, we will work hard to help you attempt to receive the compensation that may be due to you. You shouldn’t have your finances and life ruined because a surgery was performed incorrectly.
