Hand Surgery Malpractice
Degloving injuries require immediate coverage with flaps or skin graft and failure to do so constitutes a breach of the standard of care. As with all surgical procedures, especially with hand surgery, there is a risk that the surgeon may accidentally cut nerves or blood vessels. In the event that the patient experiences post-operative numbness, tingling, cyanosis, cool or pale extremities to indicate poor circulation, or loss of motion, these may be signs that a nerve or blood vessel supplying the extremity has been compromised. Timely recognition of this problem and intervention by medical staff are necessary. However, it may ultimately result in lifelong disability even if it is promptly recognized. Intervention may not restore function. Failure to fix fractured fingers and failure to offer appropriate physical therapy after surgery resulting in loss of function are other examples of malpractice claims against hand surgeons.
Carpal tunnel release surgery is a common procedure performed by hand surgeons. One possible injury that may result from this procedure is laceration of the median nerve. A laceration of the median nerve results in permanent nerve damage, loss of sensation and permanent loss of function of the hand.
Experts in hand surgery are trained to employ surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand or upper extremity. A hand surgeon is an expert of reparation of all hand lesions including, skeleton, muscles, tendons, nerves and blood vessels to insure integrity and function of the hand.
