Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Wrong Site Surgery Lawsuits
Surgery on the Wrong Part Of The Body?
All surgery comes with risks. However, one of those risks should not be having surgery performed on the wrong part of the body. Surgical teams are required to read charts, confirm that they know they’re working on the correct patient, the correct area, and check in with each other before cutting into a patient. When they fail to take these precautions, you can end up with a very expensive surgery that doesn’t solve your problem and may cause others. If you have been the victim of surgical errors, our Houston medical malpractice lawyers can help.

Doctors Are Supposed To Check Before They Start
Several years ago, the commission that accredits U.S. hospitals created the Universal Protocol for Preventing Wrong Site, Wrong Procedure and Wrong Person Surgery. To follow this protocol, doctors and their surgical teams are required to:
- Ensure that the doctor is matched with the correct patient and is performing surgery on the correct part of the body prior to beginning any part of the procedure
- Have the surgeon mark the part of the body that is to be operated on
- Have a timeout for the entire team prior to beginning surgery to confirm that they have the correct patient and are performing the correct surgery on the right part of the body
When doctors fail to do this and operate on the wrong part of the body, you end up dealing with the negative results. We can help you hold them accountable for their negligence.
