Can You Sue Your Anesthesiologist? Can You Sue Your Anesthesiologist?

Having to undergo surgery under anesthesia is a scary business and waking up in the middle of a surgery is high on many people’s list of terrors. Anesthesia temporarily paralyzes you so that doctors can perform the surgery without you thrashing about. It also lowers your level of cognition so that you will be unaware of what is being done during the operation. In addition, it causes amnesia so that you don’t remember what happened during surgery. But what happens when the anesthesiologist makes a mistake and you end up waking up during surgery, unable to tell the doctors due to anesthesia-induced paralysis?
