Organ Injuries from Surgery: Kingston Medical Malpractice Lawyer


When Organ Injuries Could be Caused from Surgery: Kingston Medical Malpractice Lawyer Explains

When we have surgery, we expect that the surgery will go as planned and not cause us greater harm than good.  Most of the time, this is not an issue at all.  Most surgeons and healthcare providers do a wonderful job.  However, as a Kingston medical malpractice lawyer, I know that some surgeries simply do not go as planned.  Not only could the surgery fail, but it could result in greater injuries and harm.  This may be due to mistakes performing the surgeries, but also because of the way it was performed or how it was performed.  One common injury that could be very severe are organ injuries due to New York medical malpractice.  

One of the most common ways that organ injuries occur due to surgical mistakes are from the anesthesia.  The brain, liver, stomach, intestines, and lungs are particularly vulnerable to overdoses resulting in organ injuries.  The brain particularly can become hypoxic, or a lack of oxygen, which results in severe damage that is irreversible.  

Another common cause for organ injuries is a scalpel misstep or error.  During the surgery the mistake could lacerate or damage other parts of the patient, such as a slipped tool damaging tissue, or a broken tool resulting in injury to bone.  Anytime a surgeon is rushing could result in a mistake which result in severe injury from a slipped tool.  When the surgical procedure is near certain organs in the chest or stomach, a slip of the knife could not just be tissue damage but severe organ damage.  This could be New York medical malpractice.

In addition, ramifications of surgery could also cause damage.  For example, in a total hysterectomy, if the surgical clips are put at the pelvic brim in the wrong location they could damage the ureter which drains fluid from the kidneys into the bladder.  This could cause a backup of fluid in the kidneys and result in hyperhidrosis which kills the kidney.  This is a very serious injury to a kidney and that a patient could sustain.  Our Kingston medical malpractice lawyer finds this simply unacceptable.
