New technologies bring new complications in surgery

For many Maryland residents, it may seem like each time they visit the doctor's office, they discover new technologies used in medical care. These technologies may have the potential to reduce costs and improve patient care, when used properly. When not used properly, however, the new technologies can bring devastating personal injury to patients if there is surgeon negligence.

Doctor allegedly operated on wrong body part

A 31-year-old medical student who reported to a Baltimore emergency room with complaints of pelvic pain received some shocking news. Three weeks earlier, she had undergone surgery to remove a benign cyst from her left ovary. Instead of the cyst, scans revealed her right ovary and fallopian tube were removed and the cyst remained. The doctor who performed the surgery is now facing a medical malpractice lawsuit for the error.
