If a procedure was not successful, is that malpractice?

Medical malpractice does not occur every time medical treatment is not successful. Doctors are not guarantors of the services which they render. A doctor is, however, required to have the necessary knowledge and experience to perform the services in question. Further, doctors must exercise the skill and care that others in the community use when dealing with similar treatments.
