Gallbladder removal surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the U.S. Most gallbladder removal surgeries are done by laparoscopic procedure, in which the surgeon removes the gallbladder through several small incisions in the abdomen. While the overwhelming majority of these surgeries result in the safe removal of the gallbladder, it only takes one case of medical malpractice to shatter or end a life.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to medical malpractice during laparoscopic or traditional gallbladder surgery, the attorneys at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, are here to offer advice and advocacy. We have a proven record of success obtaining favorable results for our clients.

The Dangers of Gallbladder Surgery Errors
If a laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is not performed correctly, it can result in organ perforation bringing about dangerous infections. These serious errors can lead to severe medical setbacks and even wrongful death. One of the most common mistakes made during gallbladder surgery is the accidental cutting of the common bile duct, a conduit that carries bile from the gallbladder and liver to the small intestine.
If the surgeon mistakenly cuts the common bile duct during surgery, bile can leak into the abdomen, poisoning the patient. The long-term results of such surgical errors can be devastating, including the patient having to endure additional surgery and having to live with tubes that drain bile into an external bag.
