Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding Malpractice Cases

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients who have suffered complications from Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, also known as Lap Band Surgery.   Although there are known risks with this type of weight-loss surgery, complications can be due to medical malpractice.  This includes both errors in performing the procedure itself and in the failure to properly monitor the patient post-surgically.

The complications from this type of surgery are similar to those in other types of gastric bypass surgery, but there are some additional and different complications.  These include:

           Port Leaks
           Port Problems
           Esophageal Dilation
           Stomach Wall Deterioration

Because there are risks to every surgical procedure, a bad outcome or complication after the surgery does not necessarily mean that there was medical malpractice.  It is essential to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney carefully review the reords and films from both the surgery and post-surgical treatment to see if there is a valid case.  There are strict time limitations in Michigan for filing cases so it is important to contact our office immediately if you believe that you are the victim of Lap Band malpractice.
