Thousands of people every year are injured because of surgical errors caused by medical negligence. Surgical errors occur in all types of medical procedures, whether the surgery is intrusive or nonintrusive. Although the medical profession is respected for its level of quality, errors can occur that leave patients with serious medical problems or even lead to death. A surgical error could cause a patient to require post-operative care, which can be costly, painful and time-consuming.
Some surgical errors are traced to pre-operative planning. A doctor has a responsibility to evaluate a patient’s medical history, use of medication and family history. Cosmetic surgeons also must equip themselves with sufficient patient information.
