When a doctor causes injuries to his or her patients by taking a course of action that other reasonable medical professionals would not, it may be appropriate for the victim to file a medical malpractice claim. Adherence to professional standards is always important, especially for surgeons and their teams. The consequences of surgical mistakes are very troubling because of the high stakes involved in the performance of a surgical procedure.
Surgical errors can result in severe and even life-threatening complications for a patient, and it is almost certain that additional medical expenses will be incurred. For example, if a surgeon accidentally punctures an organ during a procedure, it could result in serious complications and expensive and painful long-term injury.

Examples of Common Surgical Errors
The emergency room or an operating room is understandably tense, but surgeons, nurses, and others must cope with those pressures to avoid committing preventable harm.
Examples of common surgical errors include:
- Improper Suturing
- Mishandling of Surgical Instruments
- Post-Surgical Complications
- Incorrect Surgical Procedure
- Foreign Objects Left in the Body
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Performing Surgery on the Wrong Patient
Because surgery typically involves the use of very sharp instruments to penetrate either flesh or bone, a momentary lapse of attention or loss of full muscle control can inflict serious wounds. When negligent surgeons seriously harm helpless patients, our Springfield surgical error attorneys work hard to protect the victims’ rights.
