Types of Surgical Errors

It is important to note that not all surgical errors automatically involve malpractice. Similarly, an error during or due to surgery may not be the sole fault of the surgeon or any professional attending the surgery. Healthcare requires any number of staff who each perform some vital role. This is why we are persistent and meticulous when determining what occurred and uncovering any negligence that resulted in harm to a surgical patient. Types of surgical errors we have investigated include:

  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Wrong-site Surgery
  • Wrong Patient Surgery
  • Wrong Procedure
  • Poor Technique
  • Inadvertent Nerve or Organ Damage
  • Foreign Objects Left Inside the Patient
  • Postoperative Infections

When is a Surgical Error Malpractice?

The cause of a surgical error must be carefully investigated and connected to a patient’s injuries or worsening condition. We can find the root of the matter with the help of trusted medical experts who testify as to the duty of care owed to the patient and the breach of duty resulting in harm and damages. Examples of causes of surgical errors are as follows:

Communication Failures:

These may be between surgical staff or departments involved in the care of the patient.


Overworked, understaffed medical staff

Inadequate Planning:

Being unprepared for potential complications.


Impairment of a surgeon or medical staff member due to drugs or alcohol.

Faulty Equipment:

Malfunctioning or poorly maintained surgical instruments or technology.

Surgical Incompetence:

This could be a lack of experience or skill regarding that procedure.


Willful disregard or slipshod adherence to proper procedures and duty of care.
