Surgery on the Wrong Body Part Lawsuit
Operating on the Incorrect Area
Every operation involves some danger. Your surgeon operating on the incorrect area should not be one of them. There are many checks and processes in place to prevent surgeons from operating on the wrong person or the wrong body part. If the surgeon is negligent in completing these pre-operation processes, you may end up with an operation that does not help you and even causes more harm. If you have received surgery on the wrong body part, contact our experienced Houston attorneys to discuss your case.

Surgeons Should Follow Pre-Operation Processes
The Universal Protocol for Preventing Wrong Site, Wrong Procedure and Wrong Person Surgery was developed by the commission for U.S. hospitals some years ago. Surgeons must now follow the below steps before any operation:
- Make sure the surgeon has the right person and the right area before preparing for the operation
- Make sure the correct area is marked clearly
- Spend time with all the surgical staff before starting the operation to ensure everyone agrees they have the right person and the correct area marked for incision
If the procedures are not followed and the incorrect area is operated on, you are the one who suffers the consequences. We will ensure that the responsible medical professionals are held to account for their actions.
