Complications are neither entirely predictable nor preventable in the practice of spinal surgery. Communications, particularly the pre-operative consent, play an important role in the management of complications. Patient dissatisfaction leading to complaints and legal proceedings are common and expected sequelae to complications. This article is an overview of important aspects of doctor–patient communication and the relevant legal issues including the principles followed by the judicial system in India while adjudicating on alleged medical negligence.
