Surgery for gallbladder disease is the most common surgical procedure performed in the United States. More than 95% of these surgeries are done using a minimally invasive technique called Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Lap Choly. This surgery is done with small instruments and a television camera.
When performed by inexperienced, or careless Chicago surgeons, who have difficulty applying this technique to surgery on the gall bladder and other organs, it can lead to cutting and damaging the common bile duct, or hepatic ducts, which can lead to bile leaks, infection, bile peritonitis, abscess and death.

Here are the common signs of laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery malpractice:
- Your doctor failed to immediately respond to your complaints after surgery.
- You had leaking that resulted in infection.
- You required additional or corrective surgery following the initial procedure.
- You needed to have your common bile duct dilated after surgery.
- You experienced excessive pain after surgery
- Your doctor did not monitor your post-operative recovery.
It is also crucial that the Chicago surgeon take the time to educate the patient and family on the symptoms that might be due to a bile leak. Failure by Chicago healthcare providers to take the patient’s complaints seriously, and to act quickly, is a prime example of medical malpractice.
I advise patients to never hesitate to return to a Chicago emergency room if the Chicago surgeon is not taking your complaints seriously, or if you can’t get in touch with him or her. Time is of the essence so that irreversible bile peritonitis and infection leading to organ failure and possibly death, doesn’t occur. The presence of a leak can often be confirmed by common x-ray imaging studies.

If necessary, I can also retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many medical malpractice cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs.
