In Pennsylvania, before performing surgery, the surgeon must obtain the patient’s informed consent to the procedure. The patient’s consent must be “informed,” in other words, important information must be explained to the patient. This includes the risks, benefits, alternatives, and identity of the surgeon performing the procedure. In this case, our client died following a heart catheterization, which was performed by a surgeon who had never met the patient.
