VAN DEN BOUT, AH. Managing risks in surgical practice: A necessity. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.4, pp.16-17. ISSN 2309-8309.

The bi-annual seminar of the South African Medico-legal Society was held recently on the topic of "Management of medico-legal risks and costs in surgical practice in South Africa". The invited speakers were Dr Liz Meyer of the Medical Protection Society (MPS) and Adv Graham van der Spuy of the Cape Bar. Some of their excellent contributions follow in this report. Everyone who attended left the conference left more aware of the many risks of surgical practice and the possible legal consequences.
