What Is A Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the womb. Following a hysterectomy, the patient will no longer be able to carry children. It is an extremely invasive and serious procedure that is often performed as a life saving measure. It can take a long time to recover from a hysterectomy and all alternatives should be explored before the final decision to perform a hysterectomy is made.
The procedure is generally carried out to treat a serious or disabling condition. However, our solicitors have acted for many clients who have had to undergo a hysterectomy due to medical negligence. This may be as a result of a delayed diagnosis of ovarian cancer or due to negligence during childbirth. Such incidents of negligence are extremely serious and often result in hysterectomy compensation claims.
A hysterectomy is carried out to treat a variety of conditions. Some of the most common conditions that are treated by way of hysterectomy include:
- Removal of Ovarian Cancer
- Severe or Long Term Pelvic Pain
- Removal of Fibroids
- Heavy Periods
- Removal of Cervical Cancer
A hysterectomy can be a lifesaving treatment. However, is the procedure is carried out negligently, it can also be fatal. If you have suffered due to hysterectomy negligence contact our medical negligence solicitors today for a free assessment of your claim.
Types of Hysterectomy Leading to Hysterectomy Compensation Claims
There are a number of hysterectomy procedures that can give rise to hysterectomy compensation claims. The different procedures generally reflect the extent of the surgery and how invasive it is.
Hysterectomy procedures are generally categorised in the following ways:
- Total Hysterectomy
This procedure involves the womb and cervix being removed. Despite its invasiveness, this is the most commonly performed hysterectomy operation.
- Subtotal hysterectomy
This involves the main body of the womb being removed. This procedure leaves the cervix in place and is less invasive that a total hysterectomy.
- Total Hysterectomy With Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy
This procedure involves the complete removal of the womb, cervix, fallopian tubes and the ovaries.
It is not only the hysterectomy procedure than can lead to hysterectomy compensation claims. Often, hysterectomy negligence will happen due to complications during the surgery. Such complication can include: heavy bleeding, infection or anaesthetic errors. If the medical professional treating you does not have the necessary expertise to deal with such complication, negligence can happen.
If you think that your hysterectomy surgery was performed negligently, contact our hysterectomy compensation claims solicitors today for a free assessment of your medical negligence claim.
