Weight Loss Surgeon On Probation After Death Of Lubbock Patient

A weight loss surgeon is now on probation following the death of a Lubbock patient last year.

In August of 2002, Srungaram operated on four patients at Highland Medical Center in Lubbock. 49-year-old Eva McNew died from complications, and three others suffered serious infections from Gastric Bypass Surgery. Dr. Ramesh Srungaram performed operations in Lubbock and Houston.

This week the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners placed Srungaram on probation for the next 7 1/2 years. He has also been ordered to operate only with another surgeon present and pay a $25,000 fine.
