Pros and Cons of Orthopedic Surgery

The types of people who commonly need orthopedic surgery include runners, weightlifters, athletes who play contact sports, employees who often lift heavy things or climb ladders, and people suffering from viral diseases or genetic disorders that cause joint problems.

Orthopedic surgery can repair common injuries to joints, ligaments and tendons, such as:

  • Strains or sprains
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Spinal cord injuries such as scoliosis, ruptured disks and sciatica
  • Torn ACLs in the knee
  • Rotator cuff injuries in the shoulder
  • Bone cysts
  • Tumors
  • Club foot
  • Bowed legs
  • Dislocated or fractured bones

However, orthopedic surgery is very risky because it is invasive and time-consuming. That is why orthopedic surgeons must exercise great care to ensure a successful surgery that does not result in further injury.

Unfortunately, many surgeons exhibit a shocking lack of professionalism and attention to detail before, during and after surgery. This kind of negligence is called orthopedic malpractice and it can include:

  • Incorrectly interpreting CT scans, MRIs or X-rays
  • Improperly setting a broken bone
  • Failing to recognize post-surgical problems
  • Leaving gloves or surgical instruments inside patients
  • Improper treatment of fractures
  • Improper placement of orthopedic hardware to repair fractures
  • Failing to diagnose a health problem in a timely manner
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Applying casts too tightly, which can decrease blood flow to the area
  • Not diagnosing nerve impingement

Orthopedic malpractice can cause potentially fatal injuries, such as infections, sepsis or blood clots. You could also suffer injuries that permanently affect your mobility and physical function, including:

  • Loss of motor function in your hands and other extremities
  • Hip problems
  • Nerve damage
  • Spinal cord damage

If you have suffered because of the negligence of an orthopedic surgeon, you may be entitled to compensation for medical care, pain and suffering, and other expenses. Our Savannah orthopedic malpractice attorneys will fight for your rights and help you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
