Complications of spinal surgery that we often see are:
Case study 1 – Discectomy leading to nerve injury
Spinal surgery was performed negligently using the wrong tools. This led to an obvious risk of a nerve root injury which then resulted. The surgeon was using an outdated technique which could no longer supported by the medical profession. Damages awarded – £200,000
Case study 2 – Spinal fusion leads to nerve injury
The patient underwent a spinal fusion using a metal cage and screws. Following the procedure he suffered with severe pain and mobility problems. His case was eventually reviewed by the spinal team who noted that a metal screw was compressing a nerve. The patient underwent further surgery but was left with a permanent nerve injury which would affect his ability to work – the case settled out of court for £150,000.
