Surgery is a specialist area of the medical profession in which surgeons are highly trained to perform operations on a daily basis.

Although in most cases surgery proceedings without complication, some procedures do go wrong.

When things go wrong

Surgery carries risks in its own right and the prospect of going into hospital for any type of surgical procedure can be stressful and daunting. When a mistake is made that could have been avoided it can have a devastating emotional impact, affecting not only the person who underwent the surgery but also their loved ones.

The consequences of negligent mistakes made during surgery can be life changing. We understand the difficulties faced by people who have suffered as a result of an error made during surgery, whether it is having to face further corrective surgery, changes in their ability to work, or just simply coming to terms with the fact that you feel let down by the surgeon or hospital for making a mistake that but for their negligence, could have been avoided.
