In Light of Recent News, The Berkowitz Law Firm LLC Provides Tips for Weight Loss Surgery Patients


Stamford, CT (PRWEB) October 06, 2014

According to an article published by New Haven Register on Sept. 16, the state Medical Examining Board ordered an employee of Laser55 to stop using a device used to heat fat during weight loss surgery based on accusations that she was engaging in the unlawful practice of medicine.

According to the article, although the employee was certified in using the device, she is not a doctor and was not being properly supervised by a licensed physician during use. The Connecticut medical malpractice lawyers of The Berkowitz Law Firm LLC note that the article brings up an important message for consumers.

The West Hartford case is a good reminder that when it comes to weight-loss interventions, consumers should beware of marketing hype. Always make sure physicians and personnel have the proper licensing, experience and training to perform the procedure in question, said Russell Berkowitz of The Berkowitz Law Firm LLC. Bariatric surgery carries certain risks and should only be performed by experienced surgeons and hospitals that have the expertise to minimize such risks.

As with all surgical procedures, weight loss surgery comes with its own set of risks. Berkowitz notes that because of the risks unique to bariatric surgery, surgeons and their staffs must operate with a certain standard of care to protect the safety of their patients. When these standards of care are jeopardized, serious injury can occur.

The Berkowitz Law Firm LLC provides the following tips for consumers that are considering weight loss surgery:
