Orthopedic Surgeon Expert Witness
Orthopedic surgery, also known as orthopedics, is a branch of surgery. Orthopedic surgeons treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system using both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. They are also trained to handle sports injuries, degeneration, infection, tumors, and hereditary problems.
In a medical malpractice case, orthopedic surgeon expert witnesses can review the facts and evidence to determine whether or not there was a departure from the standards of care. If there was malpractice, the orthopedic surgeon expert witness can identify the exact instance(s) of malpractice to help you build a strong case for your client. If no malpractice is identified, you can close the case rather than pursuing a time-consuming and costly trial.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition where the nerves to the arm, the brachial plexus, are squashed between the collar bone (clavicle) and the first rib beneath. When the patient repetitively raises their arms up (as in hanging sheetrock on the ceiling) they can have numbness and nerve difficulties with their arms. However, these symptoms do not necessarily indicate that an operation is needed.
