Most medical malpractice cases involving urologists are from the failure to properly diagnose the patient's condition or surgical mistakes. Urological disorders are often markers for far more serious conditions, such as cancer of the testicles, kidneys, bladder, or prostate. The failure to timely diagnose and treat a condition could lead to serious injury or death.
Urologists are under the duty to provide medical care and treatment in accordance with generally accepted medical standards. Urology medical malpractice is when a physician or medical provider fails to live up to those standards. Depending on a patient's complaints, urologists are under a duty to screen patients for potentially life threatening conditions and to monitor them. Common tests ordered or performed by urologists include a cystoscopy, urinalysis, CT, MRI, ultrasound, x-ray, blood tests, biopsy, PSA, urodynamics, urine flow study, and cytology.
