New York Weight Loss Surgery Malpractice Attorneys
Did You Suffer Complications or Injuries After Weight Loss Surgery?
Research shows that the human body actively works to regain lost weight by decreasing your metabolic rate and increasing your hunger, making it extremely difficult to maintain a lower weight once you’ve been significantly overweight. Bariatric surgery offers you an effective alternative, a solution that seems like a miracle cure after years of struggle. That’s why medical problems related to errors made during your weight loss surgery are so devastating.
