If a surgeon violates a standard of care or makes a  preventable mistake during an operation, the patient can suffer serious injuries. While all surgical procedures are accompanied by certain potential risks, surgical errors are those that fell below the accepted medical standard of care and that cause injury to the patient. Determining whether an injury or medical problem is the result of a surgical error can be a difficult task.
