Your medical records must be reviewed by an attorney that handles medical malpractice cases, and by a New York Orthopoedist. It is possible that the informed consent that you signed for the one surgery authorized the surgeon to go higher if necessary. Even if so, that wouldn't negate the use of the wrong screws or the improper placement of screws.

Ask those you trust and respect, search New York state trial lawyers, New York academy of trial lawyers, Avvo is also a good reason. Interview a few, and look to retain the one you are most comfortable with and confident in. There is no one size fits all.
