Gastric Bypass Surgery Malpractice | Romanucci & Blandin
The number of gastric bypass surgeries has increased in recent years because of how health and body conscious our society has become. Gastric bypass surgery may be recommended to a patient who needs to lose a large amount of weight to get healthy, but there are many risks to the surgery. Gastric bypass surgery is invasive, since it requires banding, stapling and rerouting the intestines. Although many surgeries have positive results, surgical errors and medical negligence during a gastric bypass surgery can lead to serious injury or death for patients.
