The Impact Of Gallbladder Surgery Errors On Patients

There is no such thing as a minor surgery, especially when something goes wrong. Common errors related to gallbladder surgery include:

  • Anesthesia errors: Incorrect dosages, failures to obtain a patient’s prior medical history and failures to monitor a patient closely during a procedure can cause devastating outcomes.
  • Bile duct injury: A nick of the surgeon’s knife can lead to bile leakage, infection and the need for additional corrective procedures and extended hospital stays.
  • Organ perforation: A lapse in a surgeon’s attention can lead to damage to the surrounding organs, including the liver and intestines, causing bleeding and prolonged recovery times.
  • Retained stones: Failure to remove all the gallstones can cause unexpected complications, including recurrent pain, inflammation or blockages.
  • Infection: Surgical site infections can occur due to improper sterilization techniques or poor post-operative care and can even lead to life-threatening sepsis.

The physical complications from a botched gallbladder surgery may prolong your recovery and diminish your overall quality of life. You may need additional procedures, readmission to the hospital, new imaging studies and consultations with specialists – all of which are costly. You may also suffer from lost wages due to your extended recovery time, as well as extensive pain and suffering. Fair compensation is your right.
