Organ Transplant Surgery

Organ transplant surgery carries risks, it is your medical team's duty to ensure they do everything within their power to properly risk assess the operation and ensure appropriate aftercare.

Home » Personal Law » Medical Negligence » Organ Transplant Surgery

Organ transplant surgery is an operation where one or more organs are transferred from one body to another.

A transplant is usually performed when an organ is damaged or, in some cases, missing from birth.The organ donor can be from a living person or a deceased person.

There are many different types of transplant surgery which include transplant of the following:

  • Kidney
  • Liver
  • Heart/Heart Valves
  • Lung(s)
  • Pancreas
  • Intestines
  • Bones and Tendons
  • Corneas
  • Skin
  • Nerves and Veins

According to the NHS blood and transplant website (www.nhsbt.nhs.uk) over 6,500 are currently on the waiting list for transplant surgery.

Many complications can occur when a patient proceeds with organ transplant surgery, not all of which are negligent. However, when complications occur due to negligent treatment the consequences can be harder for a patient to comprehend.

A surgeon must ensure that they know where the donated organ is coming from. Did the surgeon check for any existing diseases that could be introduced into the patient’s body? Introducing a disease organ into a patient’s body can potentially cause fatal illnesses.

Complications can occur during surgery such as puncturing other organs and if this is missed by the surgeon, again, this can potentially be fatal. Follow-up treatment after surgery is just as important as the organ transplant surgery itself. The body can reject the transplanted organ and therefore it is imperative that a surgeon does not negligently miss signs of a patient’s body rejecting the transplanted organ.

If you have suffered as a result of negligent organ transplant surgery, before, during or after surgery then you can get in touch with a member of our specialist team.
