Taylor Martino, PC Resolves a Medical Malpractice Against Surgeon
Taylor Martino, P.C. has resolved a medical malpractice case against a surgeon who performed a hemorrhoid surgery called a PPH Hemorrhoidectomy on a patient. PPH Hemorrhoidectomy is a typically a minimally invasive procedure to treat hemorrhoids and/or prolapse, During PPH, a stapler-like device is used to reposition the hemorrhoids and cut off their blood supply. The surgeon chose an aggressive surgery over conservative care. The surgeon also did not follow the correct procedure during the surgery, which caused a hole between the rectal wall and vaginal wall, called a rectovaginal fistula. Our client underwent nine surgeries to correct the surgeon’s error.
