Transplants expert witnesses are skilled with various areas of focus within the medical field, as the practice is utilized for several types of treatment. When an organ has been damaged or has failed in some manner, a surgeon may perform a transplant on the patient, which entails moving an organ from one body to another as a method of replacing the failed or missing organ with one that functioning at a healthy level. Like other surgical procedures taking place within the medical field, however, certain unforeseen issues may occur that would be grounds for potential lawsuits, such as medical malpractice, an error made during the surgery, unforeseen side effects, neglecting a patient before, during, or after the procedure, failing to properly inform the patient of the transplant, or a failure of the organ to adequately function once the transplant has taken place.
Internal medicine is very important to the background of a transplant expert witness, as it encompasses organ replacements involved with gastroenterology, hepatology, cardiology, urology, and other such areas. Transplant expert witnesses may also be experienced with kidney surgery, stem cell research, renal failure, urology, developmental biology, hypertension, nephrology, dialysis, liver transplants, oncology, trauma surgery, biomedical engineering, heart failure, heart valves, and other issues or studies utilizing transplants in patients. It is also very important that your transplants expert witness be licensed and/or certified in medicine, surgery, and the area of medical focus involved with your case.
