Do you know anyone who has gone into a hospital for surgery and come out worse than they went in? Yet the doctor tells you that the surgery was successful? This happens many times because the doctor does not want to admit that something went wrong. Recently, a woman in her sixties came to me because she was in severe pain in her hip for the past year.
It seems that one year before she was in my office she had undergone a total hip replacement because she had arthritis of the hip. The physician told her that if he replaced her hip with an artificial hip she would be fine. So the woman underwent the operation. Unfortunately the pain kept getting worse after the surgery. Finally, she went to another doctor who told her that the ball of the new hip was too small and that is why she was having so much pain. We are now commencing a law suit against the surgeon for failing to implant the right size artificial hip. It is an open and shut case.
The sad part is that many people do not want to sue doctors even if they are responsible for their pain and suffering. Rest assured, we only take cases if we are sure they are really good cases and there really is malpractice. Call if you have any questions.
