The end of the year is a popular and busy time for elective surgeries to occur in Delaware medical facilities and across the country.

Technology has significantly advanced the field of all areas of medicine in Delaware and across the country.

Many Delaware patients fear going under the knife, because it is well-known that many things can go wrong during surgery. Surgical errors, infection, unexpected reactions and severe pain may occur.

She has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit for the resulting financial and physical suffering she has experienced.
