This laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is generally performed when a patient is experiencing symptomatic gallstones. The procedure is considered a safe and effective operation for the treatment of gallstones.
If you believe you have been injured due to a medical mistake or error, Mr. DiMartini will explain all of your rights and options to you.In New York, the law requires that the surgeon perform the procedure in accordance with good and accepted surgical practice and technique. A surgical error or mistake by the surgeon performing the operation that results in a cut or injury to the common bile duct or other nearby vital organ, this can cause a serious injury that can lead to stricture of the common bile duct, bleeding, liver failure and even death.
When a gallbladder surgery error was caused as a result of a surgical error or departure from accepted surgical technique, the surgeon may be found civilly liable for the damages caused to the patient.
A gallbladder surgery error may be caused by the following:
- Mistaken identification of the cystic duct for the common bile duct
- Misidentification of the correct anatomical structures
- Failure to use a pre-operative or intra-operative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
- Failure to convert the procedure to an open cholecystectomy
