Revision Bariatric Surgery

Why Revision Bariatric Surgery

Revision Weight Loss Surgery is effective in correcting complications from a previous weight loss procedure or for enhancing weight loss results. For example, revision surgery can correct gastric bypass surgery that hasn’t been successful. Gastric bypass can fail for many reasons, the most common of which is gastric pouch dilation — an enlargement of the stomach pouch, which can make the surgery less effective.

Our doctors can “revise” the procedure by injecting a medicine that inflames the stomach pouch, or they can insert a device that folds the stomach pouch tissue. Both of these minimally invasive techniques reduce the volume of the stomach pouch back to the proper size.

Weight Loss Surgery Options

At Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital, we understand how difficult it can be to lose weight and keep it off. You may experience some initial weight loss, only to regain the weight again after a short period of time. Or you may have hit a plateau and have found that you’re unable to lose any more weight no matter how hard you try. Perhaps you’ve even had gastric bypass or another weight loss procedure that hasn’t been successful in the long-term? Our weight loss specialists can help.

The Carondelet Difference

You’ll receive experienced and compassionate care by board-certified surgeons who specialize in obesity medicine and weight loss surgery. We offer compassionate services, surgical expertise and ongoing support, including an outpatient clinic with personalized care that doesn’t end when you leave our hospital.

If a particular form of weight loss surgery wasn’t available to you at the time of your initial surgery or your initial surgery wasn’t successful, now may be the time to see us. Revision weight loss surgery can give you the second chance you need to lose weight and live a healthier life.
