Marc Breakstone discusses problems with spine surgery in Boston.
In a study of hospital errors during surgery conducted by the Boston Globe, the spine was identified as the area most likely to be involved. The report found that there had been 11 surgeries conducted at the wrong level of the spine since 2006. The operations often involved fusion surgery conducted at the wrong level. “While it would be a clear departure from the standard of care to operate at the wrong level of the spine, there are more reasons – perhaps not good reasons – why that could happen,” said Marc L. Breakstone, a Boston Medical Malpractice Attorney currently representing a client who sued over a spine operation performed earlier this decade. “But it’s still inexcusable; it shouldn’t happen.” Boston Globe, July 30, 2008.
