There was a lot of publicity about a West Midlands surgeon who has been carrying out mastectomy operations incorrectly, leaving breast tissue behind. This type of procedure is being referred to as a 'cleavage sparing mastectomy'.
Our Clinical Negligence Solicitors attended a meeting with the NHS Litigation in 2011; they were informed that there are approximately 400 breast cancer patients who may have had 'cleavage sparing mastectomies'. The NHSLA could not confirm that all the women had been contacted with regards to their surgery.
Our UK contact centre is open 24 hours 7 days a week.
Slater and Gordon’s Clinical Negligence Lawyers settled a compensation claim for a woman whose cleavage sparing mastectomy wasn't carried out correctly and as a result she required further surgery.
Our expert Solicitors are concerned there could be other patients who may have had a 'cleavage sparing mastectomies' and are available to offer legal advice should this be the case.
There have been two important developments with the cases being investigated against Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and Mr Ian Paterson. Firstly, the Trust are recalling Mr Paterson's patients treated at Good Hope Hospital between 1998 -2008. It was previously thought that Mr Paterson started the cleavage sparing mastectomy procedure while at Solihull Hospital but now it seems that this is not the case.
Secondly Clinical Negligence Solicitor Nisha Sharma is investigating a case where a cleavage sparing mastectomy was performed by a junior surgeon working as part of Mr Paterson's team and she is sure that this is not an isolated case. So far, the Trust have recalled Mr Paterson's patients only. The implication is that there may be women who have undergone a cleavage sparing mastectomy who think that because they were not treated by Mr Paterson they are safe. Nisha would urge anyone who thinks that they have excess breast tissue to seek medical review as soon as possible.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers offer a free consultation to review the circumstances of your case and can help you understand whether or not you have a claim for compensation.
