Gallstone Surgery Mistake
Removing a gallbladder can be performed by traditional surgery (cholecystectomy) or by a less invasive procedure using a smaller incision and insertion of a camera (laparoscopic cholecystectomy).
A common surgical error in gallbladder surgery is nicking the gallbladder as well as adjacent organs.
Also, patients must be carefully screened to determine which type of surgery suits their needs. Failure to do so puts them at risk of serious injury and wrongful death.
