Neurosurgeon Operates on Wrong Side of Brain!

A medical malpractice case  on behalf of a 15 year old boy was instituted in Arkansas against a neurosurgeon who operated on the wrong side of this young man's brain.  The neurosurgery was planned to help reduce epileptic seizures he was having.  After the surgery, the neurosurgeon told the parents that everything was find except "he had started on the wrong side" according to the suit.  You can read the full story by clicking here .  Operating on the wrong side of the brain or operating on the wrong side of the body clearly is medical malpractice.  Hospitals should have procedures in place to insure that these tragic and fully preventable errors do not happen.  For another case of neurosurgery malpractice which my partner and I successfully handled see our earlier blog entry.
