hi there! Last july I had a kidney stone so I was sent to a urologist in order to treat it. I was taken into the hospital late july for a lithotripsy (breaks down the kidney stone without an intrusion) It's purely lasers and no entering. Right before I had the procedure, they did an xray to see if the kidney stone was still there.The doctor came and looked at it, said nothing, and went on with the procedure. When i had woken up, they said I had no kidney stone and they went ahead and did a bladder biopsy while I was asleep! This gave me a lot of pain for weeks and so on! Is there anything I can do against this doctor since he went in and did it even though he SAW the xrays beforehand and then afterward said it wasn't there?! I worry that he did something else! please help?!
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.
