Attorneys Foulkrod and Lauerman Successful in Obtaining Defense Jury Verdict

Andrew H. Foulkrod and Eric Lauerman, attorneys in the firm's Harrisburg office, recently received a defense jury verdict for a group of bariatric surgeons following 8 days of trial in Dauphin County.

It was alleged that gastric sleeve conversion from horizontal stapled gastroplasty was contraindicated and performed improperly resulting in postoperative stricture, as was management with an esophageal stent which migrated and eroded into the spleen requiring open repair.  The team of bariatric surgeons and their expert explained the nature of surgical complications recognized to occur under circumstances where everything is done properly.
