New Braunfels Surgical Error Attorney
Fighting Surgical Errors and Doctor Malpractice in Comal County, Hays County, and South Central Texas
No matter how great a surgeon is, the fact remains they are still human and prone to making the worst mistakes. Surgical errors occur when a doctor makes a mistake during surgery, or when a medical staff member fails to perform proper medical procedures, resulting in injury to a patient.
Imagine going in for an operation to have your left kidney removed and instead the right kidney is taken out. Other cases reporting surgical errors have involved surgery on the wrong limb, or a surgical instrument being left inside of a patient after surgery.

Experienced Attorney Representing Victims of Surgical Errors
All patients undergoing surgery should be able to trust their doctor. No matter what type of surgery a patient receives, there are always going to be risks involved, and certain complications are inevitable. However, the medical staff can prevent many mistakes that are made by establishing strong communication with the patient and informing that patient of all associated risks.
Lack of informed consent is one contributing factor of surgical error. Other errors involve:
- Contaminated surgical tools,
- Performing surgery on the wrong organ or failure to mark the surgical site,
- Anesthesiology errors,
- Inexperienced medical staff, and
- Lack of communication during patient transfers.
