When the unimaginable happens in the OR, we can help

Every day, people across Georgia head to local medical offices for what they hope will prove to be uneventful visits, meaning their physical exams, blood work, and imaging tests reveal them to be in acceptable -- if not great -- health.

While this proves to be the case for the majority of patients, there are others for whom these visits can prove to be highly unnerving if not entirely nightmarish. Indeed, they might receive a less than stellar diagnosis from their treating physician who informs them that surgery is either necessary or at least worthy of serious consideration.

As upsetting as this reality can be, many patients will go on to meet with a specialist and, based upon their subsequent consultation and their faith in his or her abilities, agree to undergo the surgical procedure.

While most of the time these surgeries will prove to be successful, or at least proceed without complications, it's important to understand that there is always the chance that some manner of surgical error or other type of medical mistake could occur.

Some common examples include:

  • Wrong site surgery (i.e., left hand instead of right hand)
  • Wrong patient surgery (i.e., confusing patients and, by extension, performing wrong procedures)
  • Foreign objects left behind (i.e., sponges, gauze)
  • Abrasions to unrelated internal organs
  • Burns
  • Anesthesia errors

In the event a surgical error or other medical mistake causes you serious bodily harm or results in the tragic loss of a loved one, it's imperative to understand that you can seek justice for all that you've had to endure.
