Surgical Errors

When you have surgery, you are literally putting your life in the hands of your medical team. Surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals all play an important role in completing the operation and keeping you safe.

Unfortunately, surgical practices sometimes involve critical errors that can compromise your recovery, your long-term health and, in severe cases, your life. At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, we fight for people who have been affected by surgeon malpractice throughout New York state's Capital Region and the Hudson Valley.

  • Unnecessary surgery based on a false diagnosis
  • Surgery performed on the wrong body part or wrong side of the body
