I Got My Tubes Tied But Still Got Pregnant. Is That Medical Malpractice?

I Got My Tubes Tied But Still Got Pregnant. Is That Medical Malpractice?

A: A pregnancy after tubal ligation is the result of medical malpractice only if the surgeon improperly executes the procedure.

No sterilization procedure is 100 percent effective. Having your tubes tied, called tubal ligation, fails at a rate of about only 1 percent.

A specimen of what the surgeon cut should be sent to a pathology laboratory for tests to verify that the surgeon cut the fallopian tube and not another piece of the patient’s anatomy.

If the pathology report indicates fallopian tube is present in the specimen, then no medical malpractice occurred.
