Gastric Bypass Surgery Errors

When weight loss surgery causes serious injury

Gastric bypass surgery and lap–band surgery offer hope to morbidly obese people. Most people make it through the surgery safely, some suffer painful complications, and a small percentage of patients never make it out of the hospital.

Gastric bypass and lap–band procedures usually result in weight loss and a healthier life for patients. If the surgeon makes a mistake, however, you may need additional surgery (undoing the bypass surgery) and treatment.

  • Was the surgeon experienced in this procedure? Or was there adequate supervision?
  • Were you given proper instructions for the recovery period?
  • Did the surgery cause an infection?

Gastric bypass and lap–band surgeries are usually successful, but when problems occur, you should get immediate medical help.
