Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Errors
Gallbladder removal surgery, also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy or lap chole, is a common medical procedure. By performing the surgery laparoscopically, pain and recovery time can be significantly reduced. Unfortunately, this procedure also increases the opportunity for surgical errors such as:
- Injury to the common bile duct or other biliary structures
- Transection of the wrong ductal structures
- Perforated or nicked bowel
By failing to take a full history into account, to note previous abdominal procedures or to take the time necessary to properly identify the biliary and duct structures, physicians endanger the lives of their patients. Further endangering patients, many doctors performing laparoscopic procedures have not received specialized training and have little to no experience with this form of surgery.
Recovering From Gallbladder Surgery Errors
Patients who suffer from gallbladder surgery errors face an extensive and painful journey to healing. For some, they may never fully recover — even after reconstructive surgeries, including end-to-end anastomosis, Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy and ERCP. Some may even require liver transplant. And for some, the “simple” procedure may result in peritonitis (infection) and end in wrongful death.
If you or your loved one suffered from doctor negligence and medical malpractice, you are not alone. At Davis & Davis, we have helped countless individuals and families receive the financial verdicts and settlements they need to enter a new phase of life.
