When The Urogynecology Treatment Is Worse Than The Condition
Urogynecology is a specialty area of gynecology concerned with the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the muscles and tissues of the female pelvic floor, including the bladder and pelvis. Some of the most common conditions urogynecologist treats are pelvic floor disorders and pelvic prolapse, bladder problems, and urinary incontinence.
Urogynecologists treat these conditions through a combination of medications, surgery, and physical therapy and most patients go on to experience relief. Some patients, however, don’t have this experience and fall victim to the cure being worse than the original problem. When this happens, there is always the potential for a medical malpractice case.
Is It Urogynecology Malpractice?
When a woman has had a recommended urogynecologic treatment and healed, but still experiences pain or problems with function, it’s natural to wonder what happened. The first thing to do is discuss your concerns with your primary care physician or gynecologist as well as the urogynecologist who performed the corrective procedure. It’s possible you developed an infection or had a problem with healing that can be easily corrected.
If an examination uncovers evidence that the procedure was completed incorrectly or ineffectively, or if your concerns are disregarded, it might be time to consult a medical malpractice attorney. A medical malpractice attorney will take an objective look at the facts of the situation, recommend a third-party examination by an independent physician, and try to determine if a malpractice case exists.
It can be difficult to determine if you have a medical malpractice case on your own because just because you are still experiencing pain or problems does not mean the physician is responsible. In order to be liable for the situation, the physician or caregiver must have been negligent in performing their duties somehow. Determining if negligence was a factor in the outcome is what medical malpractice attorneys do.
