This case involves a patient who suffered injuries when undergoing bariatric surgery. The patient presented to hospital and was seen by defendant to prepare for bariatric surgery. Close to a month later the defendants operated and during the surgery, the defendants made numerous attempts to intubate patient, all of which failed and resulted in a damaged larynx, vocal cords, throat and wind pipe. The surgery was ultimately aborted. Weeks later, the defendants initiated and attempted a second bariatric surgery on patient. The second surgery also involved several attempts to intubate patient, which ultimately included installing a permanent tracheostomy, and which during the course of, and as a result of, permanently damaged his larynx and caused disfigurement. A month later, patient underwent a third operation in which patient received yet another tracheostomy. It is alleged that the defendants did not follow the proper steps when conducting these procedures, and the multiple operations and intubation attempts, caused permanent damage to the patient.
