Allowing a medical professional to perform an operation on one’s body is an act that requires a large amount of trust to be issued out on behalf of the patient. While doctors are highly trained in their fields of practice, they still do tend to occasionally make mistakes. Patients are required by law to be informed of the possible risks associated with all operations and medical treatments, and they make the final decision about undergoing an operation. However, when surgical errors arise as a result of medical negligence, the patient has a right to claim damages.

What are surgical errors?
Surgical errors are mistakes made by any member of a surgical team that pose the threat of injuring or even killing the patient. All persons undergoing an operation run the risk of having an anesthesia reaction or suffering an infection, but these dangers are not considered to be surgical errors. These operative mistakes result from medical negligence and include the following:
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Surgery on Wrong Patient
- Incorrect Surgical Procedure
- Mishandling of Surgical Instruments
- Foreign Objects inside Body Cavity
- Improper Suturing
- Post-surgical Complications
As the names of these above mistreatments suggest, surgical errors are caused by human mistakes. If you have suffered from one of the above matters, the Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff medical malpractice attorneys of Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.C. can help you take action in filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
