Surgery, whether routine or complex, can be a frightening experience. Patients entrust their health and well-being to a team of doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and surgical nurses before, during and after the surgery. Unfortunately, surgical errors can occur at any stage of the process, causing medical complications, lifelong injuries, and even death.
