Bariatric Surgery

Representing Patients Injured During Bariatric Surgery or Gastric Bypass

Bariatric surgery, or gastric bypass surgery, can be a risky procedure. People struggling with weight issues often avoid the benefits of bariatric surgery due to the risks involved. While certain risks are associated with every surgical procedure, many complications can be avoided through proper surgical planning and attention.

If you or someone you love has suffered due to a mistake during gastric bypass or weight loss surgery, the attorneys at Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., can help. For more than four decades, our medical malpractice attorneys have put legal knowledge and savvy trial skills to use for injured New Yorkers throughout the state. We fight, you win.

Medical Mistakes During Gastric Bypass

While bariatric surgery can be an effective weight loss option for obese patients, the surgery is not without risk. In the past decade, a rising number of medical malpractice claims have been filed in relation to complications and health issues stemming from gastric bypass surgery.

These claims include complications arising from:

  • Failure to remove all surgical instruments from the body
  • Improper screening of patients
  • Inadequate care after surgery, including in-patient and outpatient postoperative care
  • Surgical errors leading to uncontrolled bleeding
  • Basic errors committed by facilities that are not equipped to handle surgical complications
  • Mistakes made during laparoscopic surgery (procedures that involve inserting a camera and surgical tools through a small incision)
  • Failure to properly reconnect the stomach to the small intestine, which can cause stomach fluids to leak into the abdomen
