Unnecessary Surgery

Northwest Indiana Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Patients want to trust their doctors when they recommend surgery over other remedies for illness or disease. However, studies by the National Institutes of Health show that up to 30 percent of certain surgeries may be unnecessary. Such surgeries can occur for many reasons, including misdiagnosis or the failure of doctors to pursue less invasive alternatives, such as drug treatment or lifestyle changes. In some cases, a doctor may recommend surgery solely for his or her own financial gain.

If you suspect that you may have been the victim of an unnecessary surgery, call (219) 212-2462 for a free consultation with a Northwest Indiana surgical malpractice lawyer.
