Revisional surgery

Patients may need revisional bariatric surgery if weight  loss from a previous bariatric procedure leads to inadequate weight loss or  results in complications. The type of surgery depend on your previous medical  history and individual complications.

Revisional bariatric surgery is usually performed  laparoscopically. Although this type of surgery may have a higher risk of  complications, it can be successful in treatment of inadequate weight loss if  there is an anatomic or surgical reason for the weight gain. Again, the surgeon  will discuss with you the appropriateness of such an operation.

Each revisional operation is unique. We will work with you  to discuss if you are a good candidate, what approach would be best, and what  risks are involved.
