Surgical Errors Can Be Catastrophic Or Fatal
Surgery is one of the riskiest types of medical procedures by its very nature. In addition to the process of cutting open a patient, medical professionals must follow meticulous pre- and post-operative procedures to ensure patient safety. There is no question that some surgical injuries may be unavoidable. That said, the risk of surgical malpractice is hugely amplified when surgeons and anesthesiologists are negligent. Tragically, the injuries may be fatal.
