Cesarean sections often negligently performed

Cesarean sections are a type of surgery used to deliver babies if they cannot undergo a vaginal birth, or if mothers electively choose to deliver in this manner.  While C-sections are regularly performed, our staff at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seingeld, LLP knows that in many instances, both mother and child may be left with birth injuries or complications of varying severity following this procedure.

When care is not what it should be, mothers who undergo C-sections are often left to deal with errors common to many surgeries. Surgical site infections can require additional care, including extended hospital stays, increased medication use and the potential need for further surgery. When infections are not properly addressed, a dangerous blood infection known as sepsis may also result. This condition can be fatal if it is not diagnosed and treated in time.

The American Pregnancy Association reports that since the uterus sits in such close proximity to the bladder and bowels, if a surgeon is not careful he or she may perforate one or both of these organs during the procedure. Babies are also at risk of being cut when the initial incision is made in the uterus. Moreover, if the uterus becomes damaged during the procedure, it may require a hysterectomy, or total removal of the organ, in the future. Additionally, when a doctor improperly closes a C-section, it can lead to an increased chance of uterine rupture in subsequent pregnancies, which may result in hemorrhage in the mother and death of the baby.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that C-sections are so common that as many as 32.7 percent of all deliveries are carried out this way. Unfortunately, this high rate does not guarantee that the procedure will be free of medical errors. To learn more, please see our web page.
