Laparoscopic Surgery Is Less Invasive, but Still Risky

by | Oct 6, 2015 | Firm News, Medical Malpractice, Surgical Errors |


At the Cleveland law firm of The Lancione Law Firm, you will find an attorney
with extensive experience and a proven record of success in obtaining
substantial verdicts and settlements for clients who have suffered needlessly
due to errors during surgery, such as:

  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (surgery to remove the gallbladder)
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic liver, pancreas or bile duct
  • Laparoscopic weight-loss surgery (also known as bariatric surgery)

Laparoscopic surgery errors are often recognized intraoperatively (during
surgery). Standard procedure generally requires the surgeon to call in
a specialist to repair the damage caused by a mistake such as a punctured
bladder, bowel or artery. Failure to notice and correct common complications,
failure to call in a specialist and failure to monitor a patient’s
condition after surgery may all constitute medical negligence.

Postoperative infection — whether from unsterile implements or operating
room conditions or from a nicked bowel — is one of the most common
causes of serious injury or death following a laparoscopic procedure.
Failure to administer prophylactic antibiotics after laparoscopic surgery
is a serious error and may also form the basis of a medical malpractice claim.
