Can I sue my doctor for medical malpractice in Houston if my surgery did not turn out as expected?

You cannot sue a doctor in Houston just because a surgery did not turn out as expected. The surgery may not have a gone well for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a mistake by the surgeon.
In general, in order to sue for medical malpractice, a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional must have committed medical negligence that led to an injury or death to the patient. Medical negligence occurs when the medical care provided falls below the standard accepted medical standard of care in the medical community. 
Some of the most common medical errors that result in medical malpractice include misdiagnoses, medication errors, a failure to provide ongoing care, and a failure to manage the health of the patient. Most medical professionals are highly skilled individuals who strive to provide very high-quality care for patients. However, they are still human beings who can make mistakes. If the mistake is very serious and beyond what a reasonable doctor would do, the doctor may be held liable for medical malpractice. The patient may be able to recover compensation for his or her medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
