Surgeon mistake results in wrongfully removing patient's ovary

Most readers in Houston, Texas, can probably agree that undergoing surgery can be a very stressful and scary event. It requires patients to put all of their trust in just a small group of people, consisting of one or more surgeons, along with their medical staff. Normal concerns consist of surviving the surgery or recovering after it is over. But what happens if the surgeons remove something they were not supposed to? In those cases, a patient may be able to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against the surgeons.
