Gynaecological And Obstetric Injuries
It is an unfortunate reality, that most women will have to undergo some sort of gynaecological procedure at some point. Given the sensitive nature of such procedures, it takes huge courage to stand up and ask why have you suffered this injury? Often people take years to realise, that the ongoing complaint is simply not normal.
What are Gynaecological And Obstetric Injuries?
Injuries due to gynaecological & obstetric injuries tend to be confidence shattering and life-changing:
- unplanned pregnancy,
- damage to internal organs,
- vesico-vaginal fistulas

- hysterectomy complications
- failure to repair a perineal tear adequately
- delay or failure to treat endometriosis
- urinary or bowel damage during surgery
- anaesthetic complications
- failure to identify and treat haemorrhage
- failure to diagnose and treat cancer
