What is Considered a Surgical Error

Not every surgical error will automatically be considered medical malpractice. A surgical error is medical malpractice if it can be proven that the surgeon’s performance fell below the accepted standard of care, and an injury occurred as a result of this sub-standard performance.

The “accepted standard of care” is defined as the type of care that another reasonable, competent surgeon would provide to you under similar circumstances. Essentially, if it can be proven that another surgeon would not have made the same mistake, it may be considered medical malpractice.
