Hemorrhoid Surgery and Medical Malpractice

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Medical Malpractice on Thursday, June 30, 2016.

According to research, surgical errors occur more than 4,000 times a year in the United States. A study published in the Journal of Patient Safety, suggests that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients who visit hospitals for treatment succumb to some form of preventable harm that leads to a fatal end. Not impressive but it is enlightening.

According to research, surgical errors occur more than 4,000 times a year in the United States. A study published in the Journal of Patient Safety, suggests that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients who visit hospitals for treatment succumb to some form of preventable harm that leads to a fatal end. Not impressive but it is enlightening.

One in every three patients who are inpatients in a hospital will experience a medical error. This makes medical errors the third leading cause of untimely death in the country, behind heart disease and cancer.

Hemorrhoid surgery can often be a sensitive and painful procedure. Many people who suffer from hemorrhoid complications after surgery do not consult their doctors due to the social stigma. However, it is paramount to make sure that you understand your rights and the fact that the longer you wait, the more you jeopardize your case.

One type of hemorrhoid surgery is hemorhoidectomy which is a procedure for the removal of hemorrhoids. Like any other type of surgery, a hemorhoidectomy comes with certain risks, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Post operative pain, especially with bowel movements
  • Recurrence of hemorrhoids
  • Permanent or temporary difficulty controlling gas
  • Fecal incontinence or failure to control any type of bowel movements
  • Narrowing of anal opening, which will require repeated dilations

Filing a Hemorrhoid Surgery Error Lawsuit

If a treating physician fails to perform a hemorrhoid surgery properly, it can lead to serious complications. While the impact can vary from patient to patient, any error in this type of surgery can cause lifelong complications that require consistent medical treatment and care.

You should file a medical malpractice lawsuit against your doctor if a hemorrhoid surgery error has caused you injury or harm. You should hire a lawyer experienced in medical malpractice cases as such cases can be complex and take a long time to resolve. It requires both legal and medical expertise to ensure a successful outcome.

If you have to deal with an insurance company, you will need the help of a medical malpractice attorney as well. Insurance companies will do their best to avoid paying you for your injuries through long-term litigation. They will also hope that you will not want to disclose intimate details of your life. Insurance companies often delay settlement awards and in many cases, you need to be able to provide pathology reports and expert testimony to show that the doctor was indeed negligent.

If you have been injured as a result of a hemorrhoid surgery error and are now suffering serious medical complications, you should immediately seek the help of a qualified and experienced medical malpractice attorney at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff, & Wolff of RMFW Law at 212 697 9280.
