Whether elective or non-elective, any surgical procedure is a stressful life event and not one that is taken lightly.
A patient must put themselves in a uniquely vulnerable position and trust their surgeon to take the right steps at the right times to bring them through the operation with success.
Keyhole surgery injuries
Many operations these days utilise keyhole surgery also known as laparoscopic surgery. These techniques are less invasive and involve less pain and recovery due to smaller incisions. While operating on organs or tissues during keyhole surgery, the surgeon must exercise extreme care to avoid unintentional incisions or other damage. Where heavy handedness or lack of care result in injuries, serious complications can arise.
