Holding Surgeons Accountable For Neurosurgical Negligence

Treatment of the nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves) often involves neurosurgery. This specialized area of medicine can prevent or diagnose illnesses as well as treat and rehabilitate existing disorders. Unfortunately, not every neurosurgeon performs at the optimal level. Operations this invasive carry substantial risk, and the surgeons sometimes fall short. When this happens, serious, long-term damage can result.

At Winckler, Harvey & McConnell, LLP, our Texas neurosurgical negligence attorneys work with individuals who have suffered due to medical malpractice in the operating room. We have more than 150 years of combined experience in these complex cases, against both privately held medical facilities and professionals.

Austin Attorneys Combating Neurosurgeon Malpractice

Proper medical care always begins with proper diagnosis. If a spinal cord or brain injury is improperly diagnosed, the neurosurgery itself may be an error. A surgeon can end up operating on important nerve bundles or parts of the brain that were otherwise functioning.

The care you receive from a neurosurgeon should be of the highest quality through every stage of treatment, from diagnosis to recovery after the surgery. This includes the proper use of testing mechanisms like radiology and MRIs, preoperative care and sterilization of instruments, administration of anesthesia and post-operative monitoring.

If you believe your surgeon or the team in the operating room did not behave properly, and that your injury is the result of medical malpractice, do not hesitate to contact one of our experienced lawyers.
