Any surgery will have inherent risks, and an adverse outcome does not necessarily mean that a mistake was made. However, there are scenarios where a surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurse, or other medical professional involved in a surgical procedure fails to provide a proper level of care because they are negligent, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or simply careless. In these situations, injured patients have the right to file medical malpractice lawsuits against the at-fault party.

The Villari Firm, PLLC stands ready to see justice served. Our Philadelphia surgical malpractice attorney represents patients who have suffered harm and the families of patients who have lost their lives due to negligence before, during, or after surgery. From dental to orthopedic to heart surgery, we expose wrongdoing to help our clients and to improve conditions for future patients.

What Is Surgical Malpractice?

Like other forms of medical malpractice, surgical malpractice is defined as a failure to provide a standard level of care. In this case, it would be related to a surgical procedure, including pre- and post-operative care and the surgery itself. If a surgeon, surgical nurse, or anesthesiologist fails to act as a reasonably competent professional would in the same or similar circumstances, and this causes injury to a patient, this may be considered surgical malpractice.

The following are examples of surgical malpractice:

  • Leaving an object behind in a patient
  • Performing the wrong procedure
  • Performing a procedure on the wrong side of the body or body part
  • Accidental organ laceration/perforation
  • Failure to properly monitor a patient under anesthesia
  • Anesthesia dosage error
  • Failure to get a patient’s informed consent prior to surgery
  • Negligent post-operative care
  • Post-operative infection

Patients may also be injured by defective surgical equipment or tools. We take on cases involving any type or cause of preventable surgical injuries.
