Austin Attorneys With A Depth Of Knowledge In Surgical Malpractice
Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than many other surgical techniques and can often yield favorable results with fewer scars and faster recovery time for patients. Unfortunately, the very nature of laparoscopic surgery leaves surgeons facing various limitations. It takes a truly experienced surgeon to perform the operation appropriately without unexpected consequences to the patient.
The surgeon’s ability to properly identify internal tissue and organs is one of the most challenging aspects of a laparoscopic surgery. Using just a small camera and inserted instruments, the surgeon must identify the right arteries and ducts to ensure that only certain tissue is cut.
Even grazing the wrong organ or tissue with an instrument or medical device can cause severe trauma. In some cases, these surgical injuries lead to long-term medical consequences or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured during surgery or has had complications after surgery, do not assume it is normal. You may have a medical malpractice case. If so, be sure to work with our experienced team of lawyers to build a case for compensation.
