General surgery is performed on various parts of the body, including abdomen, bowel, colon, gall bladder and liver.
It is routinely performed by a general surgeon who is responsible for carrying out a range of procedures.
No surgery is without risk, but many problems can arise directly as a result of negligence by the surgeon or one of the surgical team.
Common medical negligence during general surgery includes:
- Surgical instruments being left inside the patient
- Failure to obtain the patients consent before surgery
- Accidental removal of healthy organs or body parts
- Damage to nerves or internal organs
