Gastric Bypass Litigation Cases

Gastric bypass litigation cases have grown along with the popularity of the surgery itself. Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure performed on obese people that can help them lose vast amounts of weight quickly.

In 2004, there were over 140,000 gastric bypass surgeries performed in the U. S. alone.Gastric bypass surgery, however, is not without risk. Research has suggested that most of the gastric bypass litigation cases involve comparatively inexperienced surgeons (less than 100 procedures).

Inadequate training of surgeons who perform gastric bypass surgery is thought by many medical malpractice experts to result in litigation when complications arise after surgery. Some hospitals allow surgeons to perform the operation after attending a weekend seminar and only a few hands-on cases guided by a more experienced physician.

But, gastric bypass surgery is a complicated procedure. It may last four hours or more and require a three to five day hospital stay. Risk of infection, pneumonia and peritonitis are three of the major complications that can occur after surgery. It has been noted that up to one-third of all patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery will develop gallstones due to rapid weight loss.

Nutritional problems may develop from bypassing part of the intestine and reducing the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Anemia, metabolic bone disease, or osteoporosis may result from this reduced absorption.

The most common type of surgery is known as "Roux-en-Y gastric bypass" whereby the stomach is shrunk dramatically in size. Food bypasses most of the stomach along with the duodenum.

As the amount of surgeries have blossomed over the past 5 years so have the gastric bypass litigation cases. The amount of medical malpractice cases brought to trial because of mishaps during this type of surgery are not expected to go away anytime soon.

If you or someone you know is experiencing complications from gastric bypass surgery, seek qualified medical attention first to correct the problem and get stabilized. If you believe that your case involved medical malpractice then seek a medical malpractice lawyer in order to make sure your rights are protected and you receive the compensation that you are due.
