Revision Bariatric Surgery

 

A revision operation is one that is used to correct prior weight loss surgery that has failed. As weight loss surgery continues to evolve and improve we now know that some of the procedures done in the past have not been effective in the long term. The vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) is one such example. A revision operation may benefit you if you have persistent complications from your surgery or you may have not achieved your desired weight loss. We will take the time to understand what surgery (or surgeries) you have had before and help you determine if you are a candidate. Revision operations often convert the failed procedure to one that is better suited for the patient. While a revision surgery may not achieve the same result as one that was done initially, it may still result in a remarkable improvement for the patient. Even if your original surgery was done open (i.e. a large incision), revision procedures can usually be done laparoscopically (with small incisions). In some cases the procedure must be done with a large incision in order to complete the operation safely.

 

Revision operations can carry a higher risk operations than first time operations. Our team of experienced surgeons will help you determine if the benefits of the surgery outweigh the risks of a revision operation.
