Other times doctors mistakenly nick veins, arteries or organs, sometimes causing irreparable harm.

What to look for when surgical errors occur

Trust is a tricky thing. In your personal life, you may choose the people you let into your life carefully and only give your trust to people who earn it. Even so, when it comes to a surgeon who will be opening up your body, you may be like other Texas residents and give that trust a bit too easily.
