Medical malpractice? What to do???

I was recently operated on, and when meeting with the doctor after the surgery, he admitted to me that he operated on the wrong bone in my finger. A tumor was suppose to be removed from one of my small bones in my finger, however he cut in to the wrong bone, and removed the healthy contents of a healthy bone. He did eventually remove the tumor from the right bone.

Other than the pain and suffereing (physical and psycholigical) from the impact of operating on the wrong bone, the doctor thinks that there will be no lasting issues with this extra unauthorized surgery. On top of this, the injury probably won`t affect my ability to do my job, it has however impacted my ability to care for my infant son, and will probably impact my ability to play the sports I play.

I would like to take legal action but am really not sure what to do, how to go about it, what is fair amount to sue for etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
