Colon rectal surgeons expert witnesses often have experience with bariatric surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAP BAND), gastroectomy, coloproctology, microsurgery, robotic surgery, surgical oncology, and colonoscopy, as well as other related forms of medical treatments and procedures. Colon rectal surgeons also perform procedures to identify and treat rectal tumors, colorectal cancer, hernias, colon cancer, rectal sphincter control, incontinence, and additional ailments and/or conditions. Colon rectal surgeon expert witnesses may also be called upon to determine whether the proper cancer screenings were conducted prior to treatment, as whether a correct diagnosis was made may be integral to the case.
A lawsuit may result from an error made by the surgeon, a misdiagnosis leading to the wrong surgery performed on a patient, unforeseen side effects, an adverse reaction to anesthesia, negligence on behalf of the surgeon, or misinformation provided to a patient regarding the nature of the colon rectal surgery. Colon rectal surgeon expert witnesses may be brought in to offer an expert opinion in the event that any of these scenarios were to lead to a court case, as the specific details of each type of surgery would be highly relevant in reaching a successful outcome.
