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:

So, what's the hype with this robotic surgery? Yeah, it promised to be less invasive compared to a traditional surgical procedure, but I have read at that it may result into unfortunate circumstances which can possibly cost a patient's life. Now, is it really worth it?

Any development that would make it easier for the patient is always welcome. This will definitely benefit a lot of patients. However, it would appear that the more pressing concern in this field right now is the increasing number of complications resulting from the use of metal hip implants such as the DePuy ASR hip systems. EVen with these new systems, if the metal implants are defective, there will always be risks to the patients. More on thes complications may be learned in DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center.

This is indeed a good development. This will benefit a lot of people who may opt for hip surgeries. Even those who have to undergo revison surgeries due to complications resulting from the use of implants such as the DePuy ASR hip systems may likewise benefit from this especially considering that revision surgeries are riskier. More information about these complicataions is available at DePuy Settlement Information Center.
