Botched circumcision leaves patient without penis

Circumcision, the removal of the foreskin on a penis, is usually done on male babies in Houston. Occasionally, though, the procedure is done on adult males who have infections or other medical conditions that warrant the small surgery. In Houston, many males have the procedure done each year with little incident. However, in a recent news report out of Birmingham, a man claims his entire penis was removed during a circumcision surgical error.

Woman awarded large settlement after undiagnosed strep throat

Common illnesses such as strep throat are conditions that many Houston residents will deal with in their lifetimes. These common illnesses can be easily detected by healthcare professionals using a test. But, when these illnesses go undetected and there is a failure to diagnose they can lead to a more severe infection.

Increase in obesity-related medical malpractice claims

When residents in Texas suffer from an ailment, they seek to understand what is wrong so they can correct the medical condition. In these situations, medical interventions are often required. The individual will seek a medical professional for a diagnosis so that they can take steps to cure his or her ailment or disease. While medical professionals are able to diagnose and cure injured or ill patients, misdiagnosis could harm the patient or worsen the condition.

Licensing requirements for Texas health care workers

The licensing of medical professionals in Houston is a critical part of patient safety and maintaining standards of medical professionals. The failure to follow acceptable standards happens when medical professionals are not licensed or their performance is not periodically evaluated. This often results in medical professionals with substandard training and oversight.

Multimillion dollar settlement awarded over doctor mistake

Houston residents who go to the doctor with a medical condition assume that their trusted medical professional can help them get better or at least make a diagnosis. Medical professionals are supposed to diagnose illnesses or refer patients to specialists for further treatment or analysis. Unfortunately, negligence does occur among medical professionals and situations such as a failure to diagnose cancer can happen.
