Doctor Fears for Patient Safety After Lap-Band Surgery

Jul 26 2010 - 10:53am

Dr. Neelu Pal was fired from New York University’s Medical Center after raising concerns and calling patients warning them of the dangers of Lap-Band surgery in January 2006. Her concerns were not about the gastric band device itself, but the lack of care given after surgery and incomplete or inaccurate medical forms taken prior to surgery. She has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit, which is still pending, and is now pursuing a career in law.
