Unnecessary Surgery Can Cause Serious Harm
Our Mobile, AL surgery error attorneys can help
Many surgical procedures are necessary. Without them, many people's injuries or illnesses would get worse. And in certain extreme cases, not performing surgery or delaying an operation by a few days or hours can prove fatal.
But not all surgeries are necessary. Sometimes, doctors, surgeons or other medical professionals push for patients to be operated on, even though such surgical procedures are unnecessary. That's why unnecessary surgeries are considered serious surgical errors.
But proving that your surgery was not necessary can often be very challenging. That's why you need our legal team on your side.

We know how the legal system works in Alabama and what needs to be done to hold surgeons accountable for their actions.
What is unnecessary surgery?
There are many different reasons why surgical procedures are considered unnecessary. These reasons include:
- A non-surgical medical procedure is a safer, more effective form of treatment.
- Surgery was performed due to misdiagnosis.
- Surgery was performed on the wrong person, who does not require surgery.
- There was a miscommunication in the hospital, resulting in unnecessary surgery.
- Illegible handwriting on medical records resulted in unnecessary surgery.
