Audrey had keyhole surgery to remove endometriosis but the surgeon made a mistake in cauterising the blood vessels and injured her ureter.

We secured £125,000 in damages for Audrey* who suffered when a mistake was made during a laparoscopy procedure to treat endometriosis.

The surgeon made a mistake in cauterising Audrey’s blood vessels (using heat to stop the bleeding) and injured her ureter. The injury ultimately led to Audrey developing a hole between the rectum and vagina – a rectovaginal fistula – and requiring a colostomy.
