Inexperienced surgeons botching bile duct surgeries. Laproscopic gall bladder surgery is one of the most performed surgeries in the U.S. At least 750,000 operations are conducted each year, quickly rising to popularity since it was introduced in 1989.
However, more surgeries means more surgeons are performing them, often leaving patients with an inexperienced surgeon doing this type of express, sometimes outpatient, surgery. One of the most common injuries suffered by patients is from these physicians, when they cut the common bile duct during the surgery. This injury is often very painful and life-long effects can set in soon after the surgery. These inexperienced surgeons are to blame. Please visit this site for more:

The Da Vinci Robot, is it? I hope this thing isn't as faulty as reports say it is. I heard that many Da Vinci surgery patients have filed lawsuits against the robot's maker, Intuitive Surgical, Inc. Also, the article I've read on says this surgical system is mostly used by inexperienced surgeons!
