When Gastric Bypass Errors Have Catastrophic Results

For people who suffer from obesity, gastric bypass surgery may be the only real option to restore their health. People who must undergo gastric bypass surgery depend on their surgeons to perform the surgery correctly and competently. However, this does not always happen. Each year in America, a significant number of patients are catastrophically injured as a result of negligence from gastric bypass surgery.

Our Phoenix, Arizona, law firm — the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C. — represents victims of gastric bypass surgery errors. Victims of gastric bypass malpractice face debilitating consequences, including:

  • Long-term disability
  • Severe pain
  • Infection
  • Decreased life expectancy
  • Wrongful death

Gastric bypass surgery is not an optional cosmetic surgery; a person usually must be at least 100 pounds overweight to be eligible for this procedure. For these people, the benefits outweigh the risks — if they do not get help, they face life-threatening health problems.
