Gynaecological & Urology

Gynaecological & Urology

Gynaecology is the branch of medical practice involved in investigating, diagnosing and treating disorders of the female reproductive system, including: gynaecological oncology (cancer of the female reproductive organs, e.g. cervical and ovarian cancer), genital prolapse, gynaecological infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids and ovarian disorders.

Some examples of common gynaecology errors are:

  • Retention of instruments or swabs during surgery
  • Failure to treat post-operative infections
  • Failure to investigate abnormal cell changes seen on cervical smear tests
  • Negligently performed surgery, for example, caesarian section or hysterectomy
  • Damage to adjacent organs such as the bowel or bladder during surgery
  • Excessive scarring

Urology is the medical practice dedicated to the kidneys, bladder, reproductive organs, ureters and urethra. Common clinical negligence claims relating to urology include:

  • Bowel damage following a TVT procedure to treat incontinence
  • Surgical errors that cause incontinence, nerve damage, or impotence
  • Ureter or bladder damage during surgery
  • Negligent nephrectomy (kidney removal)
  • Negligent colposuspension
  • Negligent prostatectomy
  • Failed vasectomy
  • Negligent management of kidney disease and renal failure
  • Infection due to inadequate post-surgical care
  • Diagnosis and treatment of testicular cancer, bladder cancer and prostate cancer

 

There is commonly  an overlap between urology, gynaecology and oncology claims. Sadly, such claims are common due to the devastating effects the lasting symptoms can have on someone’s life. At Bell Lax Solicitors we understand that dealing with these types of claims can be incredibly difficult, which is why we pride ourselves in offering an unparalleled confidential and sensitive approach to each and every case.
