Gastric Bypass Malpractice

Obesity is a major social issue with ramifications in the medical profession. It is estimated that one in five people in the United States of America has been classified as obese. Morbidly obese is defined as an obese individual whose health and livelihood is in peril. These individuals have increasingly been looking to gastric bypass surgery as a means to lose weight.

What Is Gastric Bypass Malpractice?

Gastric bypass surgery is an intrusive surgical operation involving the stapling of or rerouting of the stomach and intestines. As a result, food and nutrition bypass the usual physiological route that food travels through the body, and patients experience weight loss.

These are several of the main types of gastric bypass operations:

  • Open Roux-en-Y (Rny) (Restrictive with some Malabsorption)
  • Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y
  • Fobi Pouch (Restrictive with Malabsorption)
  • Distal Gastric Bypass (Restrictive with greater Malabsorption)
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPG)
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch

These surgical procedures are not recommended for everyone who is overweight. You must be over 100 pounds overweight and have gone through several other weight loss procedures.

Gastric bypass malpractice occurs when a medical professional causes harm or personal injury while performing the surgery or through a general or particular surgical errors negligence. Our New York gastric bypass malpractice lawyers represent patients who have sustained serious personal injuries resulting from medical malpractice committed during gastric bypass surgeries.
