Surgeon Failed to Perform Tummy Tuck Procedure
I just had an umbilical hernia repair by the same plastic surgeon who repaired the last one with a tummy tuck and mesh patch. At pre-op, his nurse told me that surgery would be a large incision (hip to hip), mesh replacement and a tummy tuck. I came out of surgery with a laparoscopy incision and no tummy tuck. Doctor says he never said he would do a tummy tuck (which is true) but he never discussed the surgery either. He left that up to his nurse who was also trying to fiqure out why I didn't have the incision she had mentioned, nor the tubes for the leakage removal. At pre-op,he had asked me if his nurse had explained the surgery and if I had any questions. Since he had done the previous surgery, I had no questions. I feel cheated. What can I do?
Poor communication between surgeon and patient
