Our clinical negligence team at Hennah Haywood Law have successfully settled many gynaecology negligence cases. Many become confused between the difference between obstetrics and gynaecology. Gynaecology deals with the female reproductive system whilst obstetrics relates to pregnancy and childbirth. Gynaecology covers everything from routine treatment for painful periods and prolapse to infections and cancer. Although the vast majority of gynaecological treatments and procedures have a positive outcome, complications and mistakes do affect a small number of people.
Many women require gynaecological examinations or procedures during their lifetime, the consequences of negligence however can be both physically and psychologically devastating for the individual
The most common claims are:
Delay in diagnoses of cancer (cervical or ovarian)
Repairs following vaginal tears during delivery, anterior or posterior
Fertility treatment not carried out effectively
Misdiagnoses of condition
Insufficient endometrial ablation
Cervical cerclage (a stitch for cervical weakness)
