All surgeries come with risks. Postoperative complications caused by surgical errors are always possible. However, there is a dramatic difference between normal postoperative complications that are diagnosed and treated immediately, and abnormal complications that either could have been prevented or are ignored and not properly diagnosed and treated after they arise. Sometimes the complication is caused by medical errors during surgery. Sometimes it is a known complication that is not properly or timely diagnosed before a more serious injury results. Successful surgery requires precision and care. If a blood vessel or organ is nicked with a scalpel during surgery and not immediately repaired, the internal injury can lead to major complications that could be devastating.Failure To Diagnose Postoperative Complications
Postoperative complications, including everything from postoperative infections to postoperative bleeding, must be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we have seen many cases in which the patient complains of unusual post-surgical pain or shows signs that the surgery was not a success and the surgical team fails to investigate the cause, or simply ignores the patient's complaint. The untreated medical condition could lead to serious injuries because of the delay in diagnosis of the post-surgical complication. We stand up for the victim in these cases.We Know How To Win Postoperative Complications Cases
