Revision surgery is for patients who have had a previous bariatric procedure and experienced complications as a result of that procedure, or have inadequate weigh loss or weight regain.
Revision surgery for patients with complications includes:
- Band removal for reflux
- Band removal and conversion to gastric bypass for reflux
- Sleeve conversion to gastric bypass for reflux
- Revision of gastric bypass for ulcer disease
For patients with inadequate weight loss or weight regain, surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis.
