About Foraminotomy

A foraminotomy is a type of surgical procedure with the purpose of enlarging the area around the bones in the spinal column; more specifically, the procedure enlarges the intervertebral foramen around the vertebra. The procedure allows for a relief in pressure on compressed nerves (associated with the intervertebral foramen being too small for nerves). During the procedure, an incision is made at the site of the affected vertebra and the intervertebral foramen is widened, removing pressure from affected nerves. This procedure is performed to treat a number of conditions, including some of the following: congenital problems, skeletal diseases, cysts/tumors, spondylolisthesis, enlarged ligaments, degeneration of intervertebral disks, and degenerative arthritis of the spine, for instance.

Like all surgical procedures, there is a number of risks associated with foraminotomy. Some of the common complications associated with the procedure include the following: infections, excessive blood loss, spinal cord injury, nerve injury, stroke, etc. Unfortunately, many other complications can arise associated with the negligence of a doctor.

Understanding Medical Malpractice: Can Victimized Patients Sue?

What is medical malpractice? Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, for example, acts negligently and causes an injury to a patient. All doctors owe their patients a duty of care; that is, when a doctor-patient relationship exists, doctors have the duty to exercise the highest level of care when treating their patients. They must exercise skill, knowledge, diligence, and care, at all times in regard to treating their patients.

Unfortunately, even though doctors owe their patients this duty of care, they can potentially breach their duty of care and contribute to incidents that could harm patients. When a doctor breaches his or her duty of care, many things can go wrong during the surgery. For example, the following could occur:

  • Performing the surgery on the wrong site
  • Performing the wrong procedure
  • Closing the incision site with tools or gauze still in the wound

If this occurs, the patient is likely to experience a number of complications.

Can I sue my doctor for a botched foraminotomy surgery? Yes, you can sue your doctor if he or she botched the procedure. More specifically, you can sue based on the fact that the doctor negligently contributed to the harm that you suffered. In other words, the harm could have been completely prevented if the doctor had exercised his or her duty of care. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue for medical malpractice, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with a foraminotomy operation medical negligence lawyer.

What Should Affected Patients Do?>
If you were the victim of medical malpractice due to a botched operation, for instance, there are a number of things that you should do to prepare to pursue your claim. Consider some of the recommendations listed below:

  • Seek medical care – you will likely try to speak to the doctor that performed your surgery about the complications that you are experiencing; however, the doctor might not admit that he or she was negligent. You should go to other doctors, explain the situation, and allow them to form their opinion. A competent doctor will be able to clearly see that your complications are associated with malpractice.
  • Speak to witnesses – if any witness nurses or assistants do not want to talk to you about the incident, gather their contact information for later reference.
  • Gather all medical records – gather all records associated with the medical care that you have undergone and will need to undergo associated with the malpractice.
  • Gather records associated with financial losses – this includes records of lost income associated with the malpractice, for example.
  • Seek legal representation – seek the expertise of a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
