Spine Injuries from Neurosurgery
Oregon and Southwestern Washington Medical Malpractice Lawyers
The large majority of spinal cord injuries resulting from medical negligence are the result of inappropriate diagnosis and procedural care during neurosurgery. Neurosurgeons are the most highly trained of all surgical specialists. A mistake made during any part of the surgical procedure can result in damage to a critical part of the brain or nerve bundles in the spinal cord.
It All Begins With the Correct Diagnosis
In neurosurgery malpractice cases, spinal cord injuries are usually the result of errors in treatment rather than diagnosis. The neurosurgeon is responsible for every component of diagnosis and care of the patient, including radiology, MRI and diagnostic tests, preoperative care, anesthesia, the surgical team and postoperative treatment. A mistake made at any point in the treatment can lead to inappropriate steps, leading to permanent injury to the nerves and spine.
