Gastric Bypass Surgery Errors

Gastric bypass can be a lifesaving operation for people, providing an opportunity to get their weight under control and form healthy habits. Unfortunately, negligence in the operating room can turn this life-improving operation into a life-threatening situation. If you have suffered harm as a result of a surgical error, an experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you determine the best course of action.

Gastric Bypass Is A Serious Surgery

Like any major surgery, gastric bypass has risks. Therefore, it is used as a last resort and must be performed by a properly trained and skilled surgeon. Even the most experienced and accomplished surgeons are capable of making grave mistakes if they fail to follow proper medical procedures.

In most cases, gastric bypass is performed laparoscopically. This method of surgery may be minimally invasive, but it is not immune from risks. Mistakes can occur before, during or after the surgery, and are often not caught until well after the patient's incision is closed. These unseen injuries and infections can be deadly. This procedure can also be performed via da Vinci robot. If equipment malfunctions or a surgeon is not properly trained in this technology, severe internal injuries and death can be the result.
