DDW TV talks to Rajesh N. Keswani, MD, about the range of legal issues in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Dr. Keswani gives a lot of practical advice — and emphasizes the importance of communication — with your patients, your colleagues, and your hospital. Dr. Keswani says some legal issues can be avoided when a physician has proactively communicated the risks of a procedure to a patient, and/or explained when complications arose and why they happened. The range of exciting new tools and technologies available to physicians is also discussed, and advice on how to talk to your hospital about using the new device with patients.
