A closer look at the obstetric triage process

The latter stages of pregnancy are no doubt an exciting time for couples and families in Springfield. It's during this time when unborn fetuses experience their most rapid development. Thus, careful monitoring of mother and baby is essential to prevent birth injuries.

A closer look at common unnecessary surgeries

Some of those in Bennington who come to see us here at the offices of Donovan and O’Connor regarding medical malpractice issues do so not because of inaction by their doctors, but rather because those providers did too much. Misdiagnoses that lead to unnecessary surgeries and procedures can present a real danger to patients. In this post, we’ll examine some of those surgeries that are often performed unnecessarily.

What is Second Impact Syndrome?

Brain injuries are nothing to take lightly. Springfield residents who’ve suffered from them often don’t realize just how long their effects can linger, or why they’re required to be completely symptom-free before getting back to their normal lives. The reason is to protect them from an often fatal condition called Second Impact Syndrome.

Examining the role extractors play in birth injuries

Recent advances in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology have seemingly turned the process of childbirth into a routine procedure. Yet while modern medicine has delivered much better delivery outcomes for both mothers and babies in Bennington, errors resulting in injuries do still occur. RightDiagnosis.com reports that the annual incidence of birth injuries in the U.S. is about 7 per every 1000 deliveries. A vast majority of these injuries are the result of simple human error.
