Whether reasons for seeking revisional weight loss surgery are due to inadequate weight loss or weight regain, and/or medical complications, there is likely a revision solution to these problems.
Revisions of bariatric surgeries are technically difficult and should only be performed by an experienced bariatric surgeon with a multi-disciplinary team to help support the patient through this process prior to and after surgery. Because revisional bariatric surgery is complex, the risk for complications is greater for the patient than someone who is seeking bariatric surgery for the first time. Therefore, each patient seeking revisional bariatric surgery is evaluated on an individual basis by our bariatric team of experts, to ensure they are an appropriate candidate for surgery and to determine what surgical procedure is their best option.
We are currently able to provide limited revision services to patients whose previous bariatric surgery was performed by any non-GHP physicians. Our office is considering patients for revisional surgery on a case by case basis. Your medical records from your primary care doctor and previous bariatric surgeon are necessary in order for us to review your individual case.
If you are interested in more information about revisional bariatric surgery, you will need to attend a free seminar hosted by one of our bariatric surgeons.
