Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston talks in this video about a young man who had the wrong part of his colon removed during a procedure.
A young man was hospitalized due to an inflammatory bowel disease. He had to have the left side of his colon removed due to inflammation. He still had abdominal pain, bloody stools, and other problems months after recovering from surgery. His complaints were mostly around his lower left abdominal area.
After heading back to the hospital a pathology report revealed, that the tissue removed during the surgery was consistent with right sided colon tissue. The surgeon removed the wrong part of the patient’s colon. This lead to the patient having to have additional surgery. In instances like this surgeons mark the correct part of the body before operating and carefully review all medical charts and materials.
