New York Podiatric Malpractice
Podiatrist Errors in New York City
I have taken a special interest in podiatry malpractice cases. And have handled hundreds over my career. I have been a regular lecturer to the Podiatric Residents at the Mt. Sinai Medical Center’s Podiatric Residency Program and have lectured to podiatry residents at the New York V.A. Hospital system. I have had the privilege to be an operating room observer for the common foot surgeries including bunions, hammertoes and heel spurs. These experiences have provided a unique way to learn how surgery is correctly performed.
Podiatric malpractice is a negligence by a podiatrist. In legal terms, it is a deviation from accepted podiatric standards of care. In addition, to prove a case in Court, it also needs to be established that the “deviation” was causally related to the injury.
Podiatric malpractice lawsuits commonly involve:
- Failed bunion surgery
- Failed heel spur surgery
- Failed hammertoe surgery
- Mishandled diabetic ulcers
- Unnecessary or multiple surgeries
- Minimally invasive surgeries
- Surgical errors
