Knee Replacement Gone Bad

A woman went to have a uni-compartmental knee replacement, and immediately upon waking from surgery was in extreme pain in the back of her knee. Despite the orthopedist's reassurances that everything was fine, and that physical therapy would solve her problem, the pain continued for the next four months. Follow-up x-rays revealed that the original hardware was not put in the correct position during the original surgery. As a result, this patient had to undergo corrective surgery to remove all of the hardware and then put in a total knee replacement to fix the problem. The tragedy was that this was totally preventable if an x-ray had been taken during surgery. Watch the video to learn more. Continue reading

Unrecognized Bowel Perforation-NY Medical Malpractice Attorney Explains

You undergo surgery and after leaving the hospital you have continued complaints of abdominal pain. Thinking it's normal, you ignore it for a day or two but it continues to get worse. You call your doctor's office and are told it is normal postoperative pain. Despite taking pain medication and resting, you get weaker, and your pain gets stronger. If you're lucky, you'll get to an emergency room to be evaluated. When the doctors suspect that there is a hole in your bowel, you'll have to go back into surgery. If the contents of your bowel were leaking from a hole, you'll likely need to have part of your bowel removed and the remaining bowel sewn together. The failure to recognize a bowel perforation is often grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit in New York. If caught early enough, treatment can be effective although prolonged and distasteful. Those unlucky enough to get to a hospital on time, suffer the indignity of death from an unrecognized bowel perforation. Continue reading
