Gastric Bypass Malpractice Lawsuits

People who struggle with weight loss and fail repeatedly at dieting sometimes turn to more drastic measures, such as gastric bypass (weight loss) surgery. However, as with any other type of surgery, gastric bypass surgery is not without certain risks. While some of these risks are inherent, others are entirely preventable. Careless surgeons and negligent medical practices can turn this attempt at better health into a medical nightmare.

If you believe a surgeon, doctor, or another medical health provider acted negligently and that this led to your injuries or complications following gastric bypass surgery, reach out to the New York gastric bypass malpractice attorneys at Simonson Goodman Platzer PC right away for a free consultation. We can help you understand your legal rights, including your right to file a medical malpractice claim, and fight for the fair compensation you deserve. It’s important that you act quickly, as the statute of limitations will affect how long you have to file a claim.

Signs of Gastric Bypass Malpractice

Determining whether you are the victim of gastric bypass malpractice is not an easy task. You not only need to identify whether you received a substandard level of medical care, but you also need to prove that this substandard care was the proximate cause of your injuries, complications, and suffering.

Some common signs of gastric bypass malpractice include:

  • Your doctor failed to respond immediately to your complaints about problems after surgery
  • You had post-operative leaking that resulted in infection
  • You experienced excessive pain shortly after the surgery
  • You were adversely affected by serious complications such as clotting, difficult breathing, kidney problems, thiamine deficiency, Wernicke's encephalopathy, or Korsakoff syndrome
  • Your doctor did not monitor your post-operative recovery
