Doctor Re-Doing Operation, Is it Example of Malpractice?
logo

Q: The doctor that recently operated on me, told me that he has to re-do my operation. Could this be an example of malpractice?

Example of MalpracticeA: Operations or medical procedures are not always 100% successful. The fact that the desired result is not obtained does not mean that there has been malpractice but may be the result of a known possible complication or outcome of the procedure. For a medical result to be considered malpractice it would depend on whether the doctor fell below the standard of care of other doctors in the same field and whether that falling below the standard of care caused injury. That determination requires a review and evaluation by a medical expert.
