Inappropriate Surgery for Urogynaecological Issues

The team secured a significant damages award for a woman who, at the age of 52 had a laparoscopic sacrocopopexy for urinary symptoms. 

The case was presented on the basis that the symptoms were not those that would indicate that this procedure was appropriate.

As a result of complications that developed in the post-operative period, some of which the hospital and surgeon was slow to appreciate, the post-operative course was extremely turbulent and produced a high level of pain and psychological distress for this lady. 

The claim settled in the run up to trial for over a quarter of a million pounds.
