Gastric bypass surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is becoming an increasingly popular procedure for those coping with diabetes and other health issues associated with obesity. The surgery is a way to help lose and control weight and has also been found to control diabetes.

However, if there is a mistake or complication with gastric bypass, patients could be left severely injured and with lifelong complications.

While there are many benefits to gastric bypass unfortunately many health issues arise as a result of it. Surgeons, some who have little or no experience with gastric bypass, have flocked to performing the procedure due to its lucrative benefits, as it generally costs $25,000-$30,000.

Common Injuries and Complications from Gastric Bypass Surgery

Along with the risk of being operated on by an inexperienced surgeon, post-op leaves patients open to even more risks including:

  • Post operative leakage
  • Gall stones
  • Kidney damage
  • Malnutrition and starvation
