Cincinnati Wrong Site Surgery Lawyers

Although most surgeries performed in the United States are executed well, with the patient returning home in good condition, hospitals and doctors have been known to make mistakes. The consequences of these mistakes can be costly, both in financial and emotional terms. One of the most egregious types of these mistakes is a wrong site surgery, wherein a surgeon mistakenly performs a surgery on an incorrect side or part of the body.

If you or a loved one has been victimized by a wrong site surgery, contact a Cincinnati medical malpractice lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733, and we will examine your case and fight to make sure you are properly compensated for all of your expenses.

How Does Wrong Site Surgery Occur?

Typically, wrong site surgery occurs with symmetrical body parts: kidneys, knees, hand, feet, eyes, etc. Additionally, one patient may be operated on instead of the correct one, or it may be unclear as to which procedure is supposed to be performed. Other causes can include:

  • When multiple professionals deal with one patient, information may be lost or misinterpreted.
  • There may be a lack of specific methods of double-checking the details of a surgical procedure.
  • Time limits and pressure may cause stress on a surgeon.
