Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a medical error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.

There are risks involved in every medical procedure and not all poor results are due to medical malpractice. A lawsuit can only be filed when there is a medical error or mistake that caused your injury. Our experience medical malpractice lawyers will review your medical chart and determine whether your injury was the result of negligent treatment or just a normal risk or complication of your procedure.

Cholecystectomy Procedure

A cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder. Using advanced laparoscopic technology, it is now possible to remove the gallbladder through a tiny incision at the navel. The technique is performed as follows. The patient receives general anesthesia. Then a small incision is made at the navel (point A) and a thin tube carrying the video camera is inserted. The surgeon inflates the abdomen with carbon dioxide, a harmless gas, for easier viewing and to provide room for the surgery to be performed. Next, two needle-like instruments are inserted (points B). These instruments serve as tiny hands within the abdomen. They can pick up the gallbladder, move intestines around, and generally assist the surgeon. Finally, several different instruments are inserted (point C) to clip the gallbladder artery and bile duct, and to safely dissect and remove the gallbladder and stones. When the gallbladder is freed, it is then teased out of the tiny navel incision. The entire procedure normally takes 30 to 60 minutes. The three puncture wounds require no stitches and may leave very slight blemishes. The navel incision is barely visible.
