Some Houston residents will need to undergo a surgery during their life. These surgeries can be planned or on an emergency basis. Most surgeries go as expected but occasionally surgical errors occur.
Surgery itself carries risks to the patient but surgical errors are negligent acts performed by physicians before, during or after surgery. There are many different circumstances that can be considered a surgical error. There can be errors made before the surgery even takes place. During the procedure the wrong part of the body can be operated on, internal organs may be unexpectedly cut, or foreign objects such as surgical sponges may be left inside the body. These are all very critical mistakes that can cause a serious injury or even death.
