Direct injury to the spinal cord during surgical procedures is generally considered to be cause for malpractice action against a neurosurgeon. Incorrect or negligent performance of spinal fusion surgery is another cause for malpractice claims against neurosurgeons. Improper placement or management of an occlusion of a shunt are other examples of cases of malpractice against neurosurgeons. Improper performance of an anterior cervical discectomy with fusion of the discs of the cervical spine may result in tetraplegia.
Performing unnecessary or inappropriate surgical procedures for which there is no medical indication, as well as failure to perform appropriate imaging studies to evaluate symptoms may constitute malpractice. Malpractice may also occur in the case of failure to identify and treat an increased amount of fluid around the brain, a condition known as hydrocephalus.
A variety of procedures may be improperly performed by neurosurgeons may result in permanent disability or death include:
· Placement and anchoring of spinal rods
· Removal of wrong discs in discectomy procedure
· Facet Rhizotomy
· TLIF procedure
· Gamma Knife Radiosurgery
