Demanding Accountability From Doctors

Gastric bypass surgery is a rapidly growing and often lucrative field for doctors. As a result, many doctors who perform gastric bypass surgery are not experienced with the procedure or technique they are using.

But no matter what level of experience a doctor has with a gastric bypass surgery procedure, he or she is expected to meet the professional standards that apply to that particular procedure.

If you suffered an infection or injury during gastric bypass surgery or are noticing symptoms that were not described to you before you agreed to the surgery, I may be able to help you obtain compensation for the harm that has been done to you.

Determining Whether Your Surgeon Was Negligent

After gastric bypass surgery is done, the most important thing for the surgeon to do is to make sure that there is no leak from the surgery. A leak at the bypass site can lead to devastating complications and even death.

However, each case is different, so it is worth your while to have your case assessed by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. Don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your gastric bypass surgery injuries and symptoms with a knowledgeable attorney.
