About Artificial Disc Replacement Procedures

Artificial disk replacement is a procedure in which degenerated discs in the spine are replaced with artificial disc implants. The procedure could be conducted both in the lumbar spine and the cervical spine. In general, the procedure is used to address chronic lumbar pain or cervical pain associated with degenerative disc disease; the procedure is also used as an alternative to spinal fusion procedures.

The procedure is associated with a number of risks, which include the following:

  • Allergic reaction to the implants
  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia
  • Blood clots (increasing the risk of stroke)
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Hematoma
  • Implants moving, loosening, or breaking, for instance
  • Infections
  • Loss of motion
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Swelling

These are just a few of the many complications associated with the procedure. Additionally, these complications are likely even if the doctor and the entire surgical team exercise the highest level of care during the procedure. Unfortunately, when doctors are negligent, additional harm is likely.

What Can Go Wrong During these Procedures?
As explained above, the procedure is associated with many complications. These complications are possible even if doctors exercise thee duty of care owed to their patients. However, when doctors breach their duty of care (i.e. when doctors are negligent), it is possible for incidents to occur – incidents that are completely preventable. What can go wrong when doctors breach their duty of care?

Consider some of the following examples listed below:

  • The doctor could perform the surgery on the wrong site
  • The doctor could remove and replace the wrong disc (i.e. a healthy disc instead of the damaged disc)
  • The doctor could leave medical instruments inside the patient’s body

If this occurs, the patient can suffer significant harm. For instance, the patient could be left with chronic pain, worsened pain, and could even develop dangerous infections. In some cases, it is possible for patients’ quality of life to be significantly negatively affected due to the malpractice.

Understanding Medical Negligence and the Right to Sue

Based on the details surrounding the harm that you suffered, you might have grounds to sue based on medical malpractice. To be able to pursue a claim for medical malpractice, you must first be able to establish that a doctor-patient relationship existed; that is, the doctor agreed to treat you, and you agreed to be treated by the doctor. If this relationship exists, then the doctor owes a duty of care. More specifically, doctors owe their patients a duty of care – a duty to exercise the highest level of care, skill, and diligence when treating the patient. This means that during surgical procedures, such as artificial disc replacement procedures, the doctor must exercise care and skill to ensure that the procedure is completed correctly. Unfortunately, doctors can breach their duty of care; some examples of a breached duty of care include performing surgeries while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to perform the surgery on the correct site, and leaving medical equipment inside the patient’s body. These breaches of duty could lead to horrible complications that could ultimately harm the patient.

Can I sue my doctor for a botched artificial disk replacement procedure? Yes, you can sue your doctor if he or she was negligent and exercised medical malpractice. In some cases, you can even sue the hospital for medical negligence (because employers can be liable for the actions of their employees). If you are interested in learning more about medical negligence and your right to sue the doctor for medical malpractice, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm as soon as possible.

You Could Recover Monetary Compensation

Could you be eligible to recover compensation for artificial disk replacement surgery error? Based on the details surrounding your claim (including the extent and permanency of the harm suffered, for instance), you might be eligible to recover monetary compensation for your medical malpractice claim. How much compensation could you receive? What type of compensation could you be eligible to recover?

Some of the categories of compensation that you could be eligible to recover upon reaching a successful claim outcome include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages (could include both past and projected lost income)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Punitive damages
  • Legal expenses

What Should Affected Patients Do?

If you were the victim of medical malpractice, you must act fast to ensure that you can hold the negligent doctor or hospital accountable for the harm suffered. What should you do? Consider some of the recommendations below:

  • Speak to your doctor about your complications
  • Do not be afraid to go to other doctors for a competent medical opinion – this is important in establishing whether the harm was a result of malpractice
  • Speak to witnesses (including nurses, assistants, etc.) – it is often difficult to get witness testimonies in cases of medical malpractice because of fear of retaliation
  • Take note of the names of all parties associated with the incident for later reference (including names of nurses, assistants, doctors, etc.)
  • Gather all relevant medical records
  • Gather any records associated with lost income
  • Seek the guidance of a medical negligence lawyer
