Gastric Surgery and Medical Negligence

Gastric surgery or gastric bypass procedure is a popular surgical method adopted by surgeons for performing weight loss surgeries. The surgical procedure involves a modification of an overweight person's digestive tract.

The Procedure

The surgeon decreases the size of the stomach so that the individual can eat a reduced amount of food after the surgery. In addition, the procedure also involves a technique that allows the food to bypass a section of the small intestine so that the individual absorbs fewer calories.

The patient after the surgery feels satisfied with a smaller amount of food. This helps to prevent weight gain.

Preserving Documents

It is important to maintain copies of all documents related to the surgery. Your Medical Negligence Lawyers will advise you on which documents you need to present for the case.

Common Indications of Gastric Surgery Malpractices

A severe pain immediately or some time after the surgical procedure points to a case of medical malpractice. The pain could be due to professional incompetence. Unexplained fevers after the surgery are indicative of professional negligence, as well.

If your doctor fails to respond to complaints or monitor your recovery after the procedure, you can institute a case of medical malpractice. Difficulty in breathing is another indication of a possible malpractice.

It is crucial to take on the assistance of eminent attorneys working in the field of gastric surgery medical malpractice to build up a foolproof case against the healthcare professionals involved in the procedure.

Expert Witnesses

Since a patient, a family member or the attorney representing the patient cannot testify in court, it is important to find reliable medical experts to confirm a case of medical malpractice. A reputed firm of attorneys specialising in cases related to gastric bypass surgeries will have experience in securing qualified healthcare professionals to act as dependable witnesses for the case.
