I do not practice in PA so I can only provide you with general information.
In a medical malpractice case you have to show that the doctor's care was below the applicable standard of care (negligent) and that the negligence caused the injury.
You should consult with a medical malpractice attorney in your area. Most malpractice attorneys will usually provide a free consultation.
It's hard to say whether the doctor was negligent. If you pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit, your attorney will consult medical experts to determine if what your doctor did was reasonable. Basically, they will compare your doctor's actions to what other doctors would have done in a similar situation. The fact that doctors and nurses are telling you they've never seen this before makes me think you might have a case. I'm licensed in Illinois, but I know attorneys in your area who could give you a free consultation and help you decide whether to pursue a case. Contact me if you'd like a referral.
