Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2019 -- Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical professionals are expected to perform their jobs as best as they can provided their circumstances, training, and experience. They have a duty to do what is reasonably possible in their respective occupations and with their expertise to ensure correct and safe procedures from pre-op to post-op. Unfortunately, when mistakes and neglect occur, such as performing surgery on the wrong organ or leaving instruments inside the surgical area, serious physical and emotional pain and suffering, infections, and financial hardships may result. As a top birth defect law firm in Baltimore, MD, Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz, LLC has medically-trained law doctors who can prove medical malpractice for most medical procedures, including gastric bypass surgery.

Gastric bypass surgery, commonly referred to as stomach stapling, is the only known successful bariatric process by which the volume of a patient's stomach is restricted to discourage overeating. It is a serious medical procedure performed only after traditional, less extreme weight loss solutions prove unsuccessful. Just like any surgery, stomach stapling has its risks, but any neglect on the part of medical professionals can result in severe complications.

For example: If a surgeon performs a gastric bypass procedure incorrectly by making the staples too tight, permanent GI problems could result. In this example, medical malpractice could be proven, and Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz, LLC has the resources and medical expertise necessary to bring the claim to court to recover significant compensation for the victim.

In pre-op, patients should be informed of the risks and approved for surgery. During surgery, the surgeons must do their job correctly and as safely as possible. In post-op, there should be a follow-up, and every action must be taken to identify and address any complications during recovery. If the care provided to any patient falls below the expected standard of care during any of these phases of surgery, malpractice has most likely occurred, and the leading cerebral palsy attorneys and medical malpractice lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz, LLC can prove it.
