Spinal fusion is a medical procedure performed to rectify the potential problems associated with the small bones in the spine. The procedure involves connecting or fusing two or more spinal bones (vertebrae) together in order to form a single bone. The main agenda behind performing this procedure is to relieve the patient of pain caused during movement and provide a firm support to the spine.
Sometimes a spinal fusion surgery might go wrong and the patient suffers complications afterwards. The patient may suffer from a spinal fusion injury which is a result of a medical malpractice. If you are a victim of such a malpractice, you can consult Frekhtman & Yusuf, the leading Texas spinal fusion attorneys to seek redressal.

Spinal fusion: Medical procedure and the associated risks
In the process of spinal fusion, two or more than two small bones are connected in order to form one single bone. This is done to prevent pain while movement and helps in providing a firm support to the vertebrae. A spinal fusion surgery is basically performed to relieve pain, straighten the spine, and provide strength to it. A spinal fusion procedure is generally done to cure broken vertebrae, herniated disk, and various other spinal deformities
There are some potential risks associated with spinal fusion surgery such as:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Slow healing of the wound
  • Internal bleeding
  • Ruptured blood vessels
  • Excruciating pain

How to identify medical malpractices associated with spinal fusion surgery
There can be many forms in which medical negligence can take place. Below mentioned are the top three ways a spinal fusion surgeon can be held liable for a spinal injury:

  • The surgeon’s inability to identify the injury
  • Negligence in carrying out the procedure
  • Recommending a procedure which is not in the interest of a patient
  • Not involving the patient and his family members through the whole procedure, i.e. lack of proper guidance and misleading procedural information

Situations in which the victim can file a claim against the spinal fusion surgeon
Below mentioned are the situations in which the victim can seek redressal in case he suffers injury because of the negligence of the spinal fusion surgeon.

  • Surgical malpractices: A victim can file a claim if he feels that he has been a convict of surgical malpractices. However, it is not always important that the negligence was caused as a result of a malpractice. The final decision will remain in the hands of the jury. They will decide whether the parties reasons for claiming the redressal are authentic or not.
  • Inability to suggest alternative medical treatment: In case a spinal fusion surgeon is unable to recommend the correct treatment to the patient and anyhow performs the procedure, the victim is liable to file for a claim for the injuries suffered.
