Chicago Transplant Surgery Information
Transplant surgery is the term used to describe the medical division responsible for surgically removing a non-functioning organ and replacing it with a new, fully functional organ (from a donor). Organs may come from live donors or from deceased donors, and are crucial to save lives. Types of transplant surgery include:
- Heart transplant
- Liver transplant
- Kidney transplant
- Lung transplant
Medical Mistakes and Transplant Surgery
Transplant surgery is very serious and can affect a patient forever should something go wrong. Severe injuries that can occur from mistakes during transplant surgery may include:
- Puncturing of a vital organ
- Respiratory failure
- Brain injuries
- Kidney failure
If a patient sustains a serious injury or other complication during transplant surgery, a thorough investigation should be conducted to determine what went wrong. At Pfaff & Gill, Ltd., we have the resources to conduct extensive investigations on behalf of injured patients and their family members. We will dig deep beneath the surface to determine exactly what happened, and will fight aggressively to make sure the responsible surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist, or other healthcare provider is held accountable.
When a medical mistake occurs during surgery, it means someone failed to adequately perform his/her job. No matter what the reason is, it is unacceptable and should not go without recourse. The experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Pfaff & Gill, Ltd. serve as advocates for injured victims and their families.
