If you are treated by an orthopaedic surgeon this usually involves treatment or investigation or problems in the bones, muscles or joints of the human body. If the treatment goes wrong, or if a surgeon misses an abnormality which they should pick up on examination and this causes you to suffer pain, you may be able to claim compensation for medical negligence.
Types Of Orthopaedic Surgery Negligence
With more and more treatment carried out each year it is perhaps not surprising that negligence is increasing in this area. Some of the more common forms of orthopaedic surgery negligence include:
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Late diagnosis
- Incorrect or poor operative procedures
- Damage to surrounding nerves or organs during surgery
- Failure to order the correct tests or failing to correctly diagnose from the test results
