Urological Surgery Involves Surgery on the Kidneys, Ureters, Prostate, Bladder, Urethra, Penis or Testis in Men, while Urogynecological Surgery Involves Repair or Reconstruction of the Female Pelvic Floor due to Prolapsing Organs or Urinary Incontinence. Neuro-Urology Complications consist of urinary or sexual dysfunction that may result from nerve injury from disc/spinal nerve compression; surgical nerve injury or positioning; stroke/traumatic brain injury, or other mechanisms. Common examples would include spinal injury leading to urinary retention or erectile dysfunction, or pelvic trauma with subsequent nerve injury to the bladder or urethra or other pelvic organs. "Vaginal Rejuvenation" complications can include vaginal burns, scarring, pain during sex, and chronic vaginal pain.

Thousands of urological and vaginal/pelvic surgeries are performed each year. Most surgery, if appropriately indicated and executed, can be successful. Yet there are times when complications may occur during execution of the surgery, patient positioning, poor surgical planning, or post-operative management, and these should be recognized and addressed in a timely fashion. Injury to Male or Female Genitalia or Urinary Tract whether from surgery, a motor vehicle accident, device implantation, or other occurrence may result in significant morbidity and possible long term difficulty with urination or sexual function. Traumatic injury to nerves that affect urinary and sexual function, assessment of mechanism of injury and assessment of function and form of the genitourinary tract are critical to establishing causation, damages and any potential lifelong debility.
A thorough case review involves, but is not limited to, assessing the diagnosis and surgical indication, surgeon training, implant or surgery selection, patient risk factors, unforeseen issues, expectations, definitions of a successful surgery, post operative care and complication management, accident reports, radiology images if available, medical and billing records, Interrogatories, depositions and reports.
