Complications never fully eliminated, despite unprecedented technologies

By Lauren Wolkoff; Daniele Cruz
NEW YORK ? While the ophthalmic industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 10 years, so has the medical legal environment, particularly when it comes to refractive surgery, according to Mark G. Speaker, MD, PhD.

During the annual Ocular Surgery News New York Symposium, Dr. Speaker delivered a keynote lecture on how colleagues could learn from his personal litigation experience that ended with a judge rendering a record award of more than $7 million to a patient who had problems with ectasia following surgery.

?We have outstanding diagnostic and surgical technology that provides unprecedented safety, but we?re never going to completely eliminate complications or unsatisfactory results. Therefore, you need to practice proactively with your dissatisfied patients.?

The medical legal industry is a multi-million-dollar system, which supports attorneys, judges, insurance companies, employees and consultants, among others, Dr. Speaker said.
