Spinal Cyst Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays

A spinal cyst is a fluid-filled sac that develops as a result of degeneration in the spine and can be treated by either medication or surgery depending on the seriousness of the condition.

Spinal cyst errors may arise where there has been a delay in diagnosis and treatment leading to serious effects on the patient’s physical as well as psychological health.

Types of Spinal Cyst Diagnosis Errors & Treatment Delays

Despite a high level of care among many medical professionals, there are instances where the required standard falls below what is expected. Such errors include:

  • Errors during surgery resulting in damage to the spinal cord
  • A delay in diagnosing a spinal cyst
  • A delay in treatment resulting in chronic pain, weakness or stiffness of muscles, loss of nervous system function and permanent disability
  • A delay in treating spinal stenosis resulting in a spinal cyst
  • Errors in reviewing tests and scans such as x-rays and MRI scans resulting in a missed diagnosis
  • A failure to assess the instability of the spine prior to providing treatment for a spinal cyst
  • And any other spinal cyst errors 

If you or a loved one has been affected by spinal cyst errors and negligence which has caused further injury, surgery, exacerbation the condition or resulted in the death of a loved one, we are here to help.
