Spinal infections could turn into sepsis if not quickly diagnosed

Did you undergo an invasive medical procedure on your spine? If so, your doctors probably informed you that anytime the surface of the skin is broken, the risk of infection exists, but he or she may have downplayed the seriousness of this possibility. Whether your doctor puts too much faith in the sterility of the environment or just doesn't want to alarm you unnecessarily, you went under the knife confident you would not contract an infection.

Victims of surgical errors may have legal options

A surgical error can impose lifelong hardships on a victim. Texas residents who suffer from these errors while receiving treatment for other medical conditions can face long periods of painful recovery, worsened medical conditions and other detrimental side effects from undergoing medical procedures that were not intended for their bodies or that were botched by health care professionals.

C-sections can impose risks on mothers and babies

A Cesarean section is an operation that may be necessary to facilitate the birth of a child. When a mother cannot deliver her child naturally, she may require the intervention of a C-section to safely bring her newborn into the world. While many C-sections happen every day in Texas without issue, C-sections can be dangerous when doctors and other medical professionals fail to properly monitor and care for both mothers and babies.

Did your newborn suffer harm due to meconium aspiration syndrome?

What is meconium? Well, it is the poop your baby passes while still in utero (while still in your uterus). In many cases, it does not do any harm to your baby, but there is a one to four or five percent chance that it will. Even though this is such a small percentage, like other Texas parents, you probably think even that small chance is enough to take action.

Victim claims heart surgery mistakes led to leg amputation

Undergoing a surgical procedure to fix a broken or ailing part of one's body can be a scary process for a Texas resident. While any operation can introduce additional complications, surgeries on the heart can be particularly delicate. A Texas man recently alleged that mistakes made during his heart surgery led to serious complications, resulting in the amputation of his leg.

Why do so many surgical errors happen?

To a Houston patient, the steps leading up to the surgical procedure they need to get healthy may seem very simple. They know exactly what their ailment is, exactly what their doctors have decided for their treatment, and exactly when they must arrive at the hospital to have the surgical procedure that will set them on the course to recovery. They may have single-mindedness about their medical plan and what must be done to complete it.
