What is ROP in Tampa, Florida?
Many people come to us in Tampa, FL and ask us what ROP is. ROP stands for Retinopathy of Prematurity. When babies are born before 40 weeks, 38 weeks gestational time, the optic nerve doesn’t develop appropriately and there are procedures that are well-known that have a very high success rate for taking care of that optic nerve so that a baby’s vision is preserved. If your baby had ROP or Retinopathy of Prematurity and was not treated and has lost vision then you have a likely medical malpractice claim.
