Can I Sue a Doctor Because an Operation Didn’t Make Me Better?

Doctors do not guaranty that their treatment will be successful. At best, they can tell you what their experience has been with other patients and what they think will happen with you. They will tell you the risks and benefits of the procedure, and let you make the choice of whether to go forward. Unless the doctor made some mistake during the procedure that caused an injury, you cannot successfully sue the doctor because you did not get better.
