The law recognizes that is a cause of action, it is known as an informed consent complaint. The doctor is obligated to inform you if the probable and possible bad outcomes, complications and things that might go wrong, so that you can make an informed decisions to whether of not you want to risk those potential bad outcomes, and if the doctor doesn’t do that, and you suffer something that you had no idea that you were going to suffer, then yes you would have a complaint which it sounds an informed consent.
