What is gynecological malpractice?

Gynecological care specializes in the female reproductive system. This includes general reproductive health. Gynecologists are responsible for diagnosing problems in a reasonable amount of time and providing the most appropriate manner of treatment. In addition, the reproductive needs of women change throughout the various stages of life, so gynecologists must take a woman’s age into account in order to provide appropriate care.

Some common gynecological malpractice errors include:

  • Failure to timely diagnose breast, uterine, ovarian or cervical cancers
  • Wrongly administered hormone therapy treatments
  • Errors during surgical procedures, such as hysterectomy, cyst removal, or tubal ligation
  • Complications from abortion procedures/li>
  • Contraception complications

Trustworthy representation by skilled medical malpractice attorneys

Gynecological errors can have serious, long-term consequences for injured women. Misdiagnosis allows serious ailments to go untreated, sometimes for significant periods of time. In the most serious of cases, this delay can lead to the patient’s death. Incorrect treatment decisions often cause additional pain and suffering for the patient, while exacerbating the underlying condition. Possible consequences of gynecological malpractice include:

  • Metastasis of cancer
  • Damage to the urinary system, resulting in long-term incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Damage to the reproductive system

Where death can result from the most serious gynecological errors, other mistakes can lead to conditions that require years of medical care and expensive treatments. Gynecological errors can also negatively affect a woman’s personal relationships, professional goals, and feelings of self-worth. When these tragic incidents occur, count on a tenacious medical malpractice attorney to secure adequate compensation for these costs.
