Unnecessary Surgeries

Medical Malpractice law firm helping you recover from unnecessary surgeries

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.

Protecting patients from harm from unnecessary plastic surgery

Unnecessary plastic surgery is one of the most common types of unnecessary operations, including facelifts, mammoplasty, tummy tucks, and reconstructive surgery. A plastic surgeon may be negligent in performing unnecessary plastic surgeries for a variety of reasons, including when patients have blood clotting disorders, recent heart attacks or infections, certain cancers, or other illnesses.
