For many people in Indiana, looking for a trustworthy surgeon is not something they take lightly. Surgery, regardless of its severity, puts patients at risk and leaves them vulnerable to the actions of hospital staff and the lead surgeon.

When these types of things happen, mistakes can occur which may ultimately affect the well-being and quality of life for the patient being operated on.
