Laparoscopic Surgery Injuries | We Handle Difficult Cases
Having to undergo a medical procedure such as surgery can be scary. Thanks to new technologies, robotic and laparoscopic surgeries are becoming more commonplace. These techniques are touted as being minimally-invasive and having much shorter recovery times than traditional methods. However, this does not mean that there are no dangers associated with undergoing these types of procedures.
At Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, our attorneys work hard to protect the rights of patients who have suffered harm as a result of robotic or laparoscopic surgery.
Many Common Procedures Are Performed Laparoscopically
Laparoscopy involves a doctor using a camera inserted into your body to either diagnose a medical condition or perform a surgical procedure. Because of its many advantages, this technique is currently used in a wide variety of medical procedures, such as:
- Intestinal removal
- Obstetric and gynecological procedures
Laparoscopy is also common used in gallbladder removal surgery, known as a cholecystectomy.
Injuries Can Be Extremely Serious
Even a slight error by a doctor performing laparoscopic surgery on you can have catastrophic consequences. One major risk is infection, which can occur if instruments have not been sterilized properly. An uneducated or inexperienced surgeon may make an error and cause serious bleeding or internal damage. Receiving compensation for injuries sustained during surgery can help you pay for things like medical bills and lost wages if you are unable to return to work.
