Malpractice Arising from Bad Surgical Techniques

When an operation is unsuccessful, the injured patient and his or her family may seek to blame the physician. It certainly is tempting to look to the surgeon’s technique when the patient’s injury is the result of inadvertent cutting, tearing or crushing of tissue, or hemorrhaging from poorly tied blood vessels. Frequently, it is the bad technique of the surgeon that is responsible for the mishap, but that is not always the case.

Malpractice in Female Sterilization

In order to permanently prevent a woman from becoming pregnant, a physician may perform one of a number of sterilization procedures. Sterilization may be accomplished through the removal of the uterus, both ovaries, both fallopian tubes, or a closure of the fallopian tubes. A tubal closure is currently the most common procedure when the sole purpose of the procedure is to prevent pregnancy.
