Can surgeons and dentists in foreign countries be sued for medical malpractice?

Possibly. But that depends entirely on the laws of the country where treatment was provided. And most countries make it much more difficult than the U.S. to sue doctors for medical malpractice. Doing so can be an expensive, time-consuming and frustrating experience. And even if you persevere and eventually win the case, damages awarded by foreign courts for medical malpractice tend to be modest by comparison with U.S. awards.
