Gynecological operations, like any other medical procedures, involve inherent risks to the individual. Some examples of these operations involving risk include hysterectomy, ovarian surgery, tubal ligation, cystocele or rectocele repair, laparoscopic surgery, hysteroscopy, and myomectomy. In general, risks involved with these operations are significantly reduced based on the competency of the surgeon, including any pre- or post- care treatments made in addition to the surgery.
If you have sustained an injury or have been misdiagnosed as a result of negligence during a gynecological procedure, or have received an incorrect treatment prior to or after a surgery, please contact Caras Law Group today for a free consultation and case evaluation.
