I'm a 27yr old female. I had surgery in Nov '11. I started physical therapy the next day. This continued for the next month and a half. My condition did not get any better, I had a follow up with my doctor in Jan '12. He did not say anything about it except it will go away. About 45 days later he see's me again and says that something is wrong and referred us to another doctor who did a nerve EMG and told us I have a femoral neuropathy. And more then likely it was permanent. Our current doctor told us that is was the anesthesiology fault for this to happen. He said that he hit my nerve when he injected the nerve block. it's been almost a year and still no change. I have no feeling in my thigh or my calf and I have to wear a brace now. I am about to lose my job and my world if falling apart
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
Surgical malpractice occurs when a medical professional makes an error during surgery that was both preventable and beyond the normal risks.
