Medical negligence claims relating to orthopaedic surgery are becoming increasingly more common as surgical procedures in this field become more complex with the advancement of both medicine and technology.
All surgery carries an element of risk and this should be fully explained to you before any surgery is carried out. However, sometimes there are errors in the way the surgery is performed or in the way that the post-operative care is delivered.
Some of the most common claims arise from negligence occurring in orthopaedic surgery include:
- Incorrect diagnosis and treatment
- Incorrect interpretation of X-rays
- Poor operative technique
- Post-operative infection
- Poor cleaning of wounds
- Poor dressing of wounds
