Almost every surgery requires sponges, surgical clamps and other instruments. Surgeons and other medical professionals are required to follow strict protocols and procedures to ensure safety. Sadly, these protocols are too often not followed. When they are not, items are left frequently behind in the body. It goes without saying that these can produce injurious consequences including illness, postoperative infection or organ damage. Depending on the extent of an injury, a woman of child-bearing age may no longer be able to have children.

Foreign objects can be left anywhere in the body and may even stick to body parts, including the abdomen or bowel. These cases often require further intensive medical interventions, including more complex surgeries. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a retained foreign object in surgery, get in touch with our team.
