What is ACDF Surgery?

ACDF – or anterior cervical discectomy and fusion – is a neck surgery that consists of removing a damaged disc to relieve pressure (either spinal cord or nerve root pressure) and alleviate pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling caused by the pressure. ACDF procedures consist of two parts – the discectomy and the fusion. During the anterior cervical discectomy, the disc is removed between two vertebral bones (the surgery could be conducted from the front or the back of the neck). During the fusion, a bone graft or implant is placed where the disc was removed.

There are a number of risks associated with the surgery. Some of the common complications of ACDF surgeries include the following:

  • Fusion failure
  • Dysphasia (or issues with swallowing)
  • Spinal fluid leak
  • Nerve root damage
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Blood vessel injury
  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Trachea or esophagus damage

Without a doubt, the actions of the doctor performing the surgery could increase the risk of complications.

Understanding Malpractice

Did the negligent actions of your doctor contribute to the harm that you suffered? If so, your doctor might be guilty of medical malpractice. To establish medical malpractice, you must first prove two things: (1) a doctor-patient relationship existed, and (2) the doctor was negligent. A doctor-patient relationship exists when the doctor agrees to treat the patient and the patient agrees to be treated.

To prove that the doctor was negligent, the elements of negligence must be present. The four elements of negligence include the following:

  • A duty of care
  • A breach of duty
  • Cause
  • Harm

All doctors owe their patients a duty of care. They must exercise their duty of care and act carefully and skillfully when treating their patients. Doctors, however, can unfortunately breach their duty of care. Examples of a breach of duty include performing a surgery while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, not performing the surgery correctly, performing the surgery on the wrong site, and failing to provide the patient with appropriate follow-up care. A breach of duty could cause the operation to go wrong, which could result in harm – i.e. the patient’s condition worsening, or the patient suffering complications.

That is, if the doctor negligently contributed to the harm that you suffered during or after your surgery, you could sue the doctor for medical malpractice. Could you also sue the hospital for medical negligence? Based on vicarious liability, you might also be able to pursue a claim against the hospital under some circumstance.

If you are interested in learning more about medical malpractice and establishing liability for spinal fusion complications, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm today.

Can You Sue?

Can I sue my doctor for a botched ACDF surgery? Yes, you can sue your doctor if he or she negligently performed the procedure incorrectly or botched the procedure, for example. Your right to sue is based on the concept of medical malpractice. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue the doctor or hospital for medical negligence, you should speak with an ACDF surgery medical malpractice lawyer immediately.

What Should You Do?

If you or a member of your family suffered medical malpractice, there are a number of things that you should do to prepare to take legal action against the liable parties. Consider some of the recommendations listed below:

  • Seek medical care – if you suspect or know for a fact that the doctor who performed your surgery was negligent. Do not be afraid to be evaluated by multiple doctors.
  • Take photos of any visible harm (such as swelling at the incision site, for example)
  • Keep all medical records associated with your original treatment and any follow-up treatment associated with the malpractice
  • Speak to witnesses (including nurses, assistant nurses, etc.)
  • Gather records associated with any lost income or any other financial losses suffered due to the malpractice
  • Seek the legal expertise of an ACDF operation medical negligent lawyer as soon as possible

For more information about the steps that you should follow after suffering harm due to medical malpractice, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm as soon as possible.

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of consortium

File Your Claim on Time

Without a doubt, you could sue for the ACDF surgery complications. If you are interested in pursuing a claim, you must act quickly, as your claim is subject to a statute of limitations. What is a statute of limitations? A statute of limitations determines the specific length of time that claimants have to pursue their claims. If claimants do not file their claims on time, they could lose their right to sue entirely.

How long do you have to pursue your medical malpractice claim? In California, medical malpractice claims are subject to the following deadlines:

  • Three years from the date of injury
  • One year from the date of discovery of the injury

If you would like to learn more about the specific length of time that you have to pursue your claim, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm at your earliest convenience. Our lawyers help you file your claim within the appropriate deadline.
