Introduction

Laparoscopic surgery is used to examine the abdominal organs such as the appendix, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen and stomach for diagnostic purposes. A long thin tube with a high resolution is inserted into small incisions in the body. This may be to diagnose sources of pelvic or abdominal pain which stem from tumors, fluid in the abdominal cavity, liver disease or cancers.

Expertise in Action

While considered a low risk procedure, there are some risks associated with laparoscopic surgeries which when performed have led to claims of medical negligence. The most common risks that can occur are bleeding, infection or damage to the organs during the procedure. Experts in laparoscopic surgery are often required to conduct assessments of plaintiff injuries or of defendant practitioner procedures and training.

Sample Reports

For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.

Cost

The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:

  • The need for a view or inspection of a location
  • The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
  • Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
  • Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
