Breast Cancer Patient receives compensation following negligent breast cancer surgery.
05 December 2011
Clinical Negligence Solicitors, Russell Jones and Walker, acted on behalf of a lady who underwent a 'Cleavage Sparing Mastectomy' by surgeon Mr Ian Paterson in Birmingham a number of years ago. The surgery is usually carried out to strict NHS guidelines. However, in our client's case, the surgeon left behind excess tissue within the breast. Fortunately for our client she read an article about the issue in the local press and was able to have surgery to remove the excess breast tissue. Our Clinical Negligence Surgery Specialist Solicitors are led to believe there are another 400 patients in the Birmingham area who may have received the same operation and will need to seek medical advice. RJW is acting on behalf of a number of other patients who have been operated upon by the same surgeon in the West Midlands area.
