Miami Gastric Bypass Malpractice Attorney
Anthony Quackenbush is a Miami Gastric Bypass Surgery Malpractice Lawyer who helps the victims of medical malpractice. A gastric bypass surgery (also referred to bariatric surgery or “stomach stapling”) is a procedure designed to cause overweight people to lose weight. In the procedure, the stomach is typically divided into two separate sections. Each of these sections is then attached to the intestines.
The effect of the gastric bypass procedure is to limit the size of the stomach. This effectively limits the food intake of the patient, which regulates his or her weight – which is the goal of the gastric bypass operation.
However, there are several severe risks to a gastric bypass surgery. These include infections. Gastric bypass operations can lead to severe infections, and it is the job of the surgeon to follow up with the patient after the procedure to make sure that infection doesn’t result. If the surgeon doesn’t do this and an infection results, the doctor will be responsible for the harm caused.

Certain people are candidates for gastric bypass procedures, and certain people are not candidates – for various reasons. If a surgeon decides to perform a gastric bypass surgery on a patient who is not a candidate for that procedure and catastrophic effects result, then the doctor will be liable.
Anesthesia errors/mistakes also frequently occur during gastric bypass surgeries. These include giving too much anesthesia (which can result in comas and vegetative states), not giving enough anesthesia (which can result in a state of “anesthesia awareness” in which the patient is conscious and aware of what is happening but cannot move or express this to the doctor), giving the wrong type of anesthesia, given anesthesia to a patient who is already on medications that don’t interact well with the anesthesia, intubation errors, and IV/intravenous-line errors/mistakes.
Intubation errors occur when the anesthesiologist places a plastic tube into the patient’s windpipe in order to help with breathing during a gastric bypass procedure. Intubation errors can cause injuries to a patient’s windpipe, throat, esophagus, or mouth. Intravenous (IV) line errors/mistakes can cause injuries to a patient’s skin.
During a gastric bypass surgery, a surgeon may also operate in an unsanitary environment, using unclean hands or dirty tools. If this occurs, an infection may result and the doctor will be responsible.This South Florida Gastric Bypass Surgery Negligence Attorney Will not Let His Clients Get Taken Advantage of
