The female reproductive system is complicated and can impact many other bodily functions. It is not just pregnancy and sexual function that can be affected when something goes wrong during gynecological surgery. The rectum, bladder and other organs are in close proximity and can be damaged with even a small error. Surgical mistakes cause serious complications far from the reproductive area, leading to brain damage or even death.
Surgical Errors Made During Gynecological Surgery
There are many different gynecological conditions that require surgery. These can include excessive menstrual bleeding, ovarian cyst removal, hysterectomies, cervical cancer tubal ligations and uterus ablation. Many are performed endoscopically, but some may require open surgery. When mistakes are made during these surgical procedures, the consequences may result in serious health problems or even death.

- Improper anesthesia dosage or monitoring
