In some cases, unfortunately, surgeons make critical errors in performing surgery and actually perform the wrong surgical procedure on patients.

Dangers of Having the Wrong Operation
Surgery is a complex and important process that takes years to learn. Surgeons have to go to years of school and have significant experience before they are trusted to perform surgeries on their own. This amount of schooling and necessary experience is required so that traumatic errors, such as performing the wrong surgery, will be avoided. When a mistake occurs, dangers like the following can result:
- Critical condition of a patient can worsen
- Development of a new physical ailment
- Emotional / psychological damage
Sadly, despite the trust placed in medical professionals, many people are unduly harmed by medical errors, causing them to suffer these and other consequences.
