As with a lot of medical procedures and surgeries, there can be some risks. Regardless, it is reasonable to expect that the professionals overseeing the operations and procedures will properly identify and treat any surgical errors as soon as possible, to minimise the development of any long-term effects.
Sometimes, however, doctors can make mistakes which results in revisits to hospital, or the patient having to undergo a second procedure to fix what went wrong.

Urology compensation claims cover a broad spectrum of both medical and surgical complaints related to the male and female urinary tract, and male reproductive system. Claims may relate to the medical management of, or surgery involving, the bladder, urethra, ureters, kidneys, adrenal glands, testicles, prostate, etc.
It is important for these procedures that a thorough clinical assessment is delivered, along with good communication between the patient and medical professionals, good record-keeping, follow-up appointments and informed consent.
Commonly implicated procedures include:
- Ureteroscopy/ureteric stenting;
- TURP or transurethral resection of the prostate;
- Vasectomy; and
- Urethral catheterisation.
