You may have recently heard that some patients who underwent cardiothoracic operations at UPMC’s Presbyterian-Shadyside and Mercy Hospitals have filed lawsuits after experiencing serious injury. Some of the injuries alleged to have been caused by surgeons included amputations, brain injuries and, in some cases, even death. Only an experienced medical malpractice attorney can determine if the injury was the result of a complication or medical malpractice.
If you or a family member has undergone a cardiothoracic surgery at UPMC Presbyterian-Shadyside or UPMC Mercy such as a lung surgery, gastric surgery or bypass, or GERD (GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease) surgery and suffered a serious injury, you may be entitled to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit if:
· You did not get the right follow-up care;
· Your surgery took much longer than expected;
· The person who explained the procedure to you was not the surgeon who performed the procedure;
· You were not provided with a satisfactory explanation of the procedure; or
· You believe that your surgery was unnecessary, or not needed, or that you feel that you were talked into a surgery that you did not want
