Surgeons in Texas are expected to exercise a reasonable degree of care during procedures, and, if they do not do this, they can be held financially responsible for any harm caused as a result. In another state, a woman has alleged that the knee replacement she received was performed negligently. She is seeking monetary damages as part of a medical malpractice suit.
The woman who filed the complaint claimed that a doctor did a knee replacement procedure on one of her knees. However, the procedure was reportedly not done properly. For instance, she said her knee replacement was not cemented appropriately.
