Wrongful Death

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. Morbid obesity is defined as an obese individual whose health and livelihood is in peril.

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. This surgical procedure is not recommended for everyone that is overweight. You must be over one hundred 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 in the after care by not following accepted standards of practice.

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

  1. Open Roux en Y (Rny) (Restrictive with some Malabsorption)
  2. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y
  3. Fobi Pouch (Restrictive with Malabsorption)
  4. Distal Gastric Bypass (Restrictive with greater Malabsorption)
  5. Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPG)
  6. BilioPancreatic DivSurgical Malpractice Lawyers
