Medical damage and errors in orthopedics

Medical error in orthopedics

Because of the spread of traumatic and degenerative diseases among the population, some medical errors are also possible in the orthopedics sector.

Orthopedic treatments may require different types of urgency and the suggested therapies can be both medical and surgical.

In both cases, the patient must be informed by the orthopedist in a comprehensive way about the possible risks and side effects of the individual types of treatment.

Possible complications can be prevented thanks to a close cooperation between the surgeon and the rehabilitative health staff who must work in synergy to obtain a rapid and full recovery of the patient's motor skills.

Medical errors in orthopedics could occur as a consequence of an incorrect diagnosis (failure to recognize fractures), an incorrect execution of a fracture surgery, an incorrect surgery of leg ligaments, an insertion of incorrect size prostheses or some injuries at the nerve endings or at the spinal cord.
