New York, NY, Retained Surgical Devices Injury Lawyers

One of the most common surgical errors occurs when the medical team leaves behind surgical instruments in the patient's body. This easily preventable form of medical malpractice can have devastating results, causing the patient to suffer severe injury, additional surgery, organ perforation and even wrongful death.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to a retained surgical device, the attorneys at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, are here to offer experienced legal guidance and advocacy. This is the one time that the law allows one year from the date of discovery of the foreign object within which to bring a lawsuit for malpractice even if treatment occurred more than two and half years prior. We have successfully handled numerous medical malpractice cases for clients throughout New York.

Contact us online or by telephone at 1-866-516-5887 to speak with an experienced New York retained surgical devices injury attorney.

Retained Surgical Devices

Many different types of surgical instruments have been left behind during surgery, including scalpels, forceps, needles, suction tips, clamps, lap pads, tubes and scissors. The most commonly retained surgical device is sponges. Leaving a sponge in the patient after surgery is known as gossypiboma.

Surgical teams typically have a dedicated member responsible for counting surgical devices that come into the operating room and making sure all devices are accounted for when the surgery is completed. When this and other protocols are not followed, and a surgical instrument is left behind in the patient, it may be a case of medical malpractice.
