Thousands of lives are saved every year through planned operations carried out by surgeons in the UK, whilst many more people undergo surgery after being brought in to the Accident and Emergency Department.
New ways of performing surgery, such as keyhole surgery, have been developed and continue to be developed in order to minimise discomfort and after effects of the operation. As a result, the UK has some of the most advanced medical equipment and best trained surgeons in the world.
Unfortunately, there are risks within surgery and even the slightest error by the surgeon can result in additional pain for the patient, sometimes leading to permanent personal injury or death. It is not known how many people suffer the effects of medical negligence in surgery, although it is estimated that there are around 850,000 medical accidents in hospitals and other places of medicine each year.
