General surgery is not without risk which includes leaving tools behind, erroneous cutting, failure to staunch bleeding and anaesthetic errors. Laparoscopy otherwise known as keyhole surgery was developed because it was less invasive and healing times were generally less however laparoscopy brings with it a new genre of risk. In some cases surgery may start out as laparoscopy but may need changing to open surgery if there are unexpected problems requiring the surgeon to have have better access. If you think that your condition has arisen or worsened as a result of medical negligence, contact our general surgery and laparoscopy solicitors for advice at no cost.

Although laparoscopy or keyhole surgery procedures are a substantial improvement on general surgery, for many operations there is an increased incidence of medical negligence compensation claims. The procedure involves making small incisions in the body in order to insert surgical tools and a fibre optic camera which transmits internal images to a television screen set up in the operating theatre. There are established protocols which should reduce the risk of accidental injury during the initial stages of surgery at which time first incisions and insertion of equipment have to be made without the benefit of the camera. At that point of the laparoscopy procedure there is a risk of unintended physical damage and, subject to unusual anatomy, any injury at this stage may have been caused as a result of medical negligence due to a surgeons failure to observe and follow the well established protocols.

Over recent years the incidence of serious complications and fatalities as a result of laparoscopy procedures has dramatically increased due to keyhole surgery replacing general surgery and becoming more widespread. Most complications occur on initial surgical entry, and most medical negligence compensation claims concern damage to the bowel, injuries to blood vessels and the use of electro-surgery to coagulate, cut and dissect.
