Gastric Bypass Surgery Complications

Gastric Bypass Surgery Complications

Complications from gastric bypass surgery can be severe, ranging from post-surgical infection and chronic nausea to abscess and pulmonary embolism. In fact, some evidence suggests that approximately one in 50 gastric bypass surgery patients die within one month of the procedure. That number may increase fivefold if the surgeon is inexperienced.

You Should Have Been Warned About the Risks

A competent and respected surgeon can be expected to provide straightforward answers to questions about possible complications that can arise from gastric bypass surgery. In fact, surgeons are required to adequately inform potential patients as to the very real risk of serious injury or even death in these procedures.

An inexperienced or negligent doctor may not understand the full risks or be overconfident the surgery will go smoothly. We work closely with medical experts to determine whether your surgeon had the education, qualifications and experience to make sure that proper precautions were taken to prevent complications. If tears, leaking gastric fluids or serious bloodborne infection did occur, we know what it takes to recover full compensation.

Thank you for representing my seven year old daughter against the owner of the German Sheppard dog that attacked her. The money will be used for her college tuition. God Bless You!

My friend told me that [MyPhillyLawyer] was a very reliable company and that they take care of everything. Attorney Dean I. Weitzman was always on top of everything. He was very efficient and he made me really comfortable. I didn't know what to do and how it all works. He was very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything. They did it all very professionally. There were no problems whatsoever.

- Tatiana Bardina

What impressed me most is that I called him [Dean I. Weitzman] and told him I wanted to come and see him. He said "No, you were in an accident and I will come and see you." He came the next day. We've been friends ever since. I call him if I have a problem, and he calls me back. I tell him you are like my son. I never had to go anywhere on my own. He always said "I will pick you up and take you there." That's what I love about him.

- Lillie R. Daniels

They are a law firm that cares. They are loving. They are compassionate. They are honest and anything they can do for you they will do. They will go the extra mile.

- Lillie R. Daniels

After talking with him [Dean I. Weitzman] on the radio, he gave me some good insights on what could happen next. As a person, he just seemed like he knew you for a long time. He made you feel like he was raised up in your neighborhood. He had someone from his office contact me periodically to let me know what was happening.
