Cleveland Surgical Error Attorney
Before almost any surgical procedure, the patient or his or her guardian signs a form acknowledging that he or she understands the risks associated with it. In some cases, though, it is the recovery period following the surgery that often presents the most troublesome issues. Post-operative patients must be closely monitored in order to ensure that there are no complications that arise in the hours and days following the procedure. If they are not, issues that would otherwise have been easily treatable can spiral into extremely serious conditions.
Contact us for a free consultation if you or a loved one has suffered any kind of complication during recovery following a surgical procedure.
The care a patient receives during the recovery phase of the surgery is at least as important as the care he or she receives in the operating room. Our attorneys serve as strong advocates for patients who suffer serious health issues as a result of negligence on the part of doctors or hospital staff members. We have extensive experience with these types of cases, and we work tirelessly to see that the patient's well-being is always the first priority. — Partner Dennis R. Lansdowne

Potential Complications That May Arise During Recovery
There can be many different issues that arise while a patient is recovering from surgery. By maintaining an attentive watch over patients following the procedure, medical professionals have the ability to ensure that the patient is free from any avoidable adverse effects. Among the complications that medical professionals often need to protect against are the following:
- Difficulty coming out of or adverse reactions to anesthesia
- Undetected internal injuries or internal bleeding
- Medication errors
- Allergic reactions to drugs used during or after surgery
