What is orthopedic medicine?
Orthopedic medicine deals with injuries, issues and diseases of the joints, tendons, ligaments and bones. Common ailments affect the spine, knees, hips, neck, elbow, shoulder and wrist. This area of medicine is closely associated with sports medicine and physical trauma, and frequently includes surgery, physical therapy and other rehabilitative care. When everything goes according to plan, the results can greatly affect the quality and enjoyment of life in a very positive way. But in the event that an orthopedic medical professional provides irresponsible or negligent care, the damages are often quite severe, leaving the victim much worse off than before and facing a challenging future. In one case the Eisen Law Firm was hired when a mother repeatedly called the surgeons office because her daughter cast was to tight. She was assured that everything was fine. This delayed diagnosis of Compartment Syndrome resulted in permanent hand and finger injuries for a four-year-old girl.
What are some common orthopedic error injuries and causes?
Orthopedic surgery is typically quite invasive and often involves foreign objects such as hardware and other surgical implants. When an orthopedic surgeon makes a mistake or a manufacturer supplies faulty implants, the ensuing harm can be significant.
- Gross surgical errors such as operating on the wrong site or performing the wrong surgery on the correct area are evident orthopedic errors with terrible consequences.
- Failure to properly insert or place metal pins and plates means your injury or fracture hasn’t been corrected and can lead to various dangerous complications.
- Defective surgical implants can cause a variety of serious damages.
- Contaminated musculoskeletal allografts may lead to catastrophic injuries or death.
- Postoperative infections can be life-threatening.
- Medication errors have significant consequences.
These and other orthopedic errors can cause irreparable harm to patients and require extensive, costly and painful treatment and repair.
